I'm really excited about a talk scheduled for this Thursday the 5th at the Cultural Center. Osborne's works are fascinating examinations of human interaction with nature and landscape and graphically the patterning and line work is gorgeous. Her emphasis on process and the body engages me- these are the two most interesting themes to me. The lecture is free, at 7:00 pm. I'm wondering if I can count this as my Artist Date for the week. Too intellectual? Too professional?
