Ruth Slavin, Pam Reister, Elizabeth Rauh, and Grace VanderVliet each presented one artist at the Docent CE session on Monday, October 8th. We began the session with a close looking activity (grid), which docents could use with visitors. Found here are articles and links used to guide the discussion. The general points each presenter attempted to cover included:
1. Artist's trajectory and biographical bits
2. How this specific work fits into that arc
3. Working methods
4. Perspective on abstraction: did s/he take a stand?
5. How is this work political, or not?
