During “An Evening with Appraiser Elizabeth Stewart, Ph.D.,” she will discuss “How To See, Not Just Look at, Fine Art.”
The event will be from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at Miss Daisy’s Consignment & Auction House, 3845 State St., which is on the ground floor of the old Sears store.
Dr.Stewart, who writes the “Ask the Gold Digger” column Mondays in the News-Press, will discuss the seven elements of art with illustrations: Shape, form, texture, space, value, color and line.
She’ll also divulge her top five tricks for determining quality, with illustrations from her forensic examination of a great painting. The work of art she’ll use shows flow, relationships, artistic integrity, clarity, brushwork, light source and chiaroscuro, movement, and message.
Dr. Stewart is a certified appraiser, author of five books and host of Art & Antiques Radio Show. This is the second of three planned programs with her.
Glenn Novack, owner of Miss Daisy’s Consignment & Auction House, will host the program.
Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Seating is limited.
