On Saturday, Aug. 11 at 2 p.m., the South Plainfield Library will welcome back Dr. Michael Norris of Armchair Art Tours and the former museum educator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to start a new series about Post Impressionists. This is the first of four talks and is about Georges Seurat.
Georges Seurat (1859-1891): A Parisian who knew Normandy, Seurat created pictures based on the latest scientific vision research of his time, including Pointilism, a technique of placing daubs of paint close together. The other talks will be held on Sept. 8 - 'Vincent Van Gogh;' Oct. 20 - 'Paul Gauguin;' and Nov. 10 - 'Paul Cézanne.' Come celebrate art and view amazing artwork with Dr. Norris and the South Plainfield Public Library!
Dr. Norris got his BA in classics from the University of California at San Diego and his MA in classics and Ph.D. in art history at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He spent twenty years at the Cloisters Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and has lectured on trips all over the world. He lives in Teaneck, New Jersey.
