Talk in Brooklyn June 5

At The Observatory Room in Brooklyn.

Here's the press release:

“The Beautiful Experience” with Judith Schaechter

Date: Saturday, June 5th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $5
Presented by Phantasmaphile

World-renowned stained glass artist, Judith Schaechter (AW shucks!), will share her thoughts on Beauty through an image-rich presentation based upon her own research and ruminations.

Her talk is in response to the growing dialogue in the art world started by Dave Hickey 17 years ago, when he first published his book “The Invisible Dragon: Four Essays in Beauty.”

In Ms. Schaechter’s words: “As someone who’s always approached the fine arts from a sort of wonky angle — a female craftsperson from Philadelphia who is adamantly figurative and decorative — I have a personal stake in the notion that beauty is not ALWAYS in the eye of the beholder, but sometimes in the object beheld.”

Further note from moi:

This will be a super souped up, amped up revisiting of the Chicago talk with side digressions and elaboration. All this to say: it will not be a mere reiteration at all but a new improved in-depth probing.
