IN THE MOMENT: THE PAINTINGS OF CHARLES MOVALLI – Gallery Talk with Stapleton Kearns and T.M. Nicholas, in collaboration with Cape Ann Plein Air
"I saw Charles Movalli give a talk in the Aldro Hibbard gallery of the Rockport Art Association in 1984. (I got in for free as I was the janitor there at the time.) I thought I knew painting pretty well. I left that lecture shocked by all I didn’t know... The next morning, I got up and went to work to learn all of the things I had heard him describe. That evening changed my life."
Through his teaching, lectures, and writing Charles Movalli taught countless people about art. His paintings are enjoyed in the homes of thousands of collectors and he has taken his well-earned place in the history of Cape Ann painting. There are many artists working today who had their eyes opened to new possibilities by Charles Movalli.
Join us on October 9, 2019 from 7 - 8:30PM as the celebrated Stapleton Kearns--one of those artists who was so deeply moved by Charles Movalli--offers us an intimate glimpse into the methods and very soul of one of Cape Ann's most celebrated painters of the last half century. Stapleton will be leading us on a gallery walk through the In the Moment: The Art of Charles Movalli exhibition in our Hibbard and Maddox galleries, sharing precious insights into Charles Movalli's work and life.
UPDATE: Stapleton Kearns will be joined by his friend and fellow artist T.M. Nicholas for this important and educational RAA&M Gallery Talk.
This gallery talk is presented in partnership with our good friends at Cape Ann Plein Air. To find out more about them, we cordially invite you to click their website link here: https://capeannpleinair.com/
