Join the Kimball Art Center Monday, Aug. 30, at 6:30 p.m. for an Art Talk with visiting NYC artist Devorah Sperber. Using famous historic paintings, Sperber pixelates the images then reproduces them with thousands of spools of colored thread. She then inverts the spool-constructed pictures so that the image is viewed upside down. To the naked eye, the thread spool sculptures appear as unrecognizable patterns of color, but when viewed through a specially-designed acrylic sphere, the images spring into focus. The Art Talk is free and open to the public.
Free photography lesson
The third program in the Wildlife Protection Society’s "Wildlife Education Series" will take place Thursday, Sept. 2, at 6:30 p.m. at the Park City Library. Local wildlife photographer Michael Flaherty will lead a free session entitled "Wildlife Photography: Photo Tips and the Use of Social Media." The event is open to the public and no reservations are required.
