Join Coos Art Museum on Thursday, October 30, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for “Of Men, Myths and Jars of Clay”, a lecture presented by Steven Broocks, Coos Art Museum Executive Director.

The lecture covers the technical, historical and aesthetic development of Greek ceramics from the civilization of Minoan Crete through the Classical era in Athens. Through pottery painting Greek artists reveal themselves as individuals, they are among the first named artists in history. Pottery painting is also an incredible window into classical times unveiling myth, history and everyday lives.

Steven Broocks received his Master’s degree in Art History with a minor in Ceramics from Northern Illinois University. As a past professional potter and art history instructor he brings uncommon insight into the study of ancient ceramics.

Lecture is free for CAM members and $5 for non-members. For additional information contact the Art Education Department at (541) 267-3901.

Thank you for sharing.
