Self-Portraits by Women Artists – GI 19 540
22 October 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Tutor: Olive Maggs BA, MA, PGCEGo to all Courses
This course coincides with the Moonscapes Exhibition held at Watts Gallery, from 2 April – 23 June.
From Artemisia Gentileschi to Judith Leyster, Sofonisba Anguissola to Cindy Sherman, Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun to Sarah Lucas and many more, the unusual freedom offered by the dual role of subject and creator has allowed women artists to represent themselves in their own terms in representational, abstract or symbolic depictions. Image, identity and gender will be considered within social context and the historical period.
The course will run at the same time as the Gauguin Portraits exhibition at the National Gallery, London – 7 October 2019 – 26 January 2019.
V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
The perfect way to give a treat to someone special who takes real pleasure in learning new things and taking part in great activities.
