Presenter: Stephen Ross

At The O’Keefe Studio Center
$15 Admission (reservations not necessary)

The O’Keefe Studio Center is very proud to host a talk by Stephen Ross, recently deemed “The NorthPark Historian”.  Formerly the Curator of Education at The Nasher Sculpture Center, Mr. Ross has joined with NorthPark Center to review the archives and organize materials so that the incredible story of the shopping center over the past 50 years could be shared with the public.  In this upcoming lecture Mr. Ross will share his knowledge of this very interesting history and how art has been a critical consideration of various aspects of the development of the shopping center.

Come join us!  Wine and snacks will be served and it is sure to be an interesting talk.


This week Sedrick Huckaby will host the “Considering The Artist Seminar” at The O’Keefe Studio Center.  This session is full, but there are still a few spots left for the other exciting sessions!

Considering the Artist Seminar

An established artist will be invited to share his or her insights into the Figure Drawing motif. The sessions will be an opportunity for participants to become acquainted with various and different approaches to working from the model. These sessions will begin with the invited artist giving a brief presentation, with images of his or her work, that explains the way in which he or she approaches the observation-based drawing situation. The artist will, for instance, discuss his or her choice of pose, length of pose, materials, size of drawing, vocabulary and types and degrees of abstractions employed. The presentation will be followed by three hours of drawing where participants draw alongside the invited artist.
