From the Dab of Paint Free Lecture Series with Debbie Wells

Using the ""Fool The Eye"" exhibition (Nov 2017-Mar 2018) that I curated at the Nassau County Museum of Art with my Artful Circle partner, Franklin Hill Perrell, as inspiration, I will explain the creative tradition of trompe l'oeil (French for ""deceive the eye"") in traditional and modern art. Learn how artists can trick the eye through perspective, proportions, shadow, mixed media and unique techniques in painting and sculpture that continue to amaze viewers. Trompe l'oeil is a whimsical form of expression and keeps art-lovers of all levels guessing on how things are made.

Admission is free and open to the public. To reserve your seat call (631) 462-5400 x222 or sign up here. If you are already purchasing a class, you can include this lecture with your order.
