John Kilroy presents Joaquin Sorolla
The Scottsdale Artists’ School wraps up
The Creative Process Lecture Series
for the season with a slide presentation of the work of world renown artist Joaquin Sorolla by painter John Kilroy. The lecture will take place at 7 pm Tuesday, May 1, 2007 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Sorolla was born in Valencia, Spain in 1863 and had a very successful career as a “natural painter”—painting nature as it truly is, full of light and brightness. After his death in 1923, his work fell out of favor until the 1980s, when the art community reassessed his genius and recognized his talent and influences. John Kilroy, an artist whose work has been greatly influences by Sorolla, will teach a workshop The Big Picture: Picture Design, Concept And Analysis, April 30-May 4 at the Scottsdale Artists’ School. The lecture is held at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 E. 2nd Street in downtown Scottsdale. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in person at Scottsdale Artists’ School, 3720 N. Marshall Way or by calling 480-990-1422. Free parking for each lecture is available in the public parking garage located to the west of the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts building off 2nd Street.
