Online on Saturday, January 21, 2023, Brenda Gael Smithwill present a lecture titled“Driven to Abstraction.”
Brenda Gael Smith creates textile works made from a rich palette of her hand-dyed fabrics complemented by intensive stitching. Much of her work is inspired by the color and patterns of the natural world with a focus on her surroundings at the “other” Copacabana in Australia and her New Zealand homeland. Using a process of abstraction, Brenda captures the essence of her subjects in simplified form. Working improvisationally, she refines line, shape, color and texture to evoke a sense of place, express an idea, highlight an issue or elicit an emotional response. Learn more about Brenda’s inspiration and process in this colorful lecture.
Non-members can purchase a ticket for $10.00. A link to the lecture will be sent on the Monday before the lecture.
