GALLERY EXHIBIT
IMPRESSIONISM – BREAKING THE RULES
Thru 6/1
Early Impressionists in the 19 th century defied the academic rules. Their art captured a feeling or experience rather than achieving an accurate description. They used small brushstrokes, with a thin open composition, influenced by the changing light – think Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro. Sculpture was also influenced by this style – Picasso and Henry Moore are 2 examples. This style was also found in music and literature. Visit the Gallery to enjoy this fascinating exhibit that allows artists to defy standard academic rules.
