Oseredok’s current exhibition Line, Form, and Figure: An Exploration of the Works of Christina Senkiw is an opportunity to dive into colour and shape. Curious to learn more about the artistic tradition that Senkiw’s works derive from? Join us for a lecture titled ‘Hard Edge, Soft Body’ with renowned painter M.E. Sparks as she explores hard-edged abstraction and its influence on painters in the 20th century.
This in-person event is scheduled for August 11th, 2022, at 6:30PM, and is free to attend for all. Hope to see you there!
