Talk 1: Photography and Realism in Art - A Dialogue in Detail
Photography, drawing, and painting have exerted overlapping influences on each other since public recognition of Daguerrotypes in the early 19th century. This talk will explore photographic paintings, painterly photographs, and various stops between and beyond.

Artist and educator Jonathan Sutton draws on his training in literature, theatre, and film, and of course on art history, in his ongoing studio practice. His rendering of unreal scenes through realistic drawing and oil painting reflects a stretch one way into traditional techniques and media, and the other into discovery and invention. Jonathan has also taught art to adults and youth in Canada and overseas, and continues to engage art and education as inextricable.

There is no fee to attend the lecture series.
