A6 Kicks Off New Season of Art Appreciation with Cheers To Art!

A6’s popular Cheers to Art! program kicks off its 2015-16 season on Wednesday, October 21 at 7pm in the A6 Gallery. Combining “art appreciation with a little libation,” each month’s program explores a major artist or art movement and offers wine tasting from a specific region.

Every third Wednesday, art historian Lorna Cahall leads a lively slide presentation, occasionally bringing music, literature or theatre into the mix to build a richer understanding of the art. Attendees 21 and over are treated to a new selection of wines each month, hand-picked by Elixir Wine Group.

October’s topic, Inventing Abstraction, looks at the influential artists who pushed abstract art forward. Cahall will discuss Kandinsky, Klee, and Picasso (among others) and examine how abstract art has become the basic style of our art today.

Over the course of the 2015-16 season, Cheers! looks at modern sculpture, the Chartres Cathedral, American Abstract Expressionists, Robert Motherwell, Surrealism and Picasso. Cahallhas selected books for those who want more information on each topic. Find the full schedule of Cheers to Art and recommended reading on A6’s website: atelier6000.org.

Entry to each Cheers! program is $10 per person; no registration is required.
