MORGANTOWN — The Art Museum of WVU announces the first program in its Lunchtime Looks series for the 2018-’19 academic year. Lunchtime Looks is an opportunity for WVU students, faculty and staff, and the general public to learn more about the art and exhibitions on display at the museum and to meet other art enthusiasts in the area.
The subject of Sept. 7 presentation is Vera Klement’s “Rose Garden” and the presenter will be Bernie Schultz. He serves as the co-interim director of the Art Museum of WVU and is professor emeritus of art history in the College of Creative Arts. He has also served the college as associate dean and dean.
Schultz said “Rose Garden” is, “one of the most intriguing paintings on display in the Art Museum of WVU. It commands realistic elements with the explosive vitality of Abstract Expressionism.”
He will give a short talk exploring these elements, beginning at 12:20 p.m. in the Art Museum’s McGee Gallery. Afterward, audience members will have a chance to ask questions, and the museum galleries will be open for further exploration.
Prior to the talk, all are invited to bring a brown-bag lunch to the Museum Education Center Grand Hall at noon to talk with Schultz, museum staff and fellow museum-goers as they eat their midday meal.
The session will end by 1 p.m., for those who need to get back to their offices. Anyone who can’t get away for lunch is welcome to meet the group in the museum at 12:20 p.m. for just the presentation.
The Art Museum and Museum Education Center are near the corner of Patteson Drive and Morrill Way at the Evansdale Campus North Entrance.
Parking is available in short-term lots ST-1 and ST-9, with pay stations, one near Patteson Drive and the other near the new Evansdale Crossing building.
