FREE PUBLIC ARTIST TALK
WSS 1ST FLOOR GALLERY
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, 5:30-7PM
WSS is pleased to present a slide lecture by internationally renowned artist Stuart Shils. Shils will discuss the visual concerns fundamental to making, perceiving, and thinking about art, emphasizing the intersection between the internal perceptual moment and the design of the artist's working surface as the fundamental concern of painting. Through a variety of artists' examples throughout history and images of his own work, Shils will demonstrate the intimate relationship between observation and abstract structure.
Stuart Shils is a Philadelphia-based contemporary American landscape painter who has painted outside or looking through windows for 30 years. Now he works in the studio, but with an eye tuned to the city's many faces, often through the camera or iPhone lens. His work has been presented in solo shows in Boston, LA, NYC, Philadelphia, Richmond, San Francisco, Scottsdale, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv, and Cork (Ireland). Critical review and commentary has appeared in numerous publications including: Art in America, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Wall Street Journal, among others.
