Holly Roberts: One Painting at a Time
Friday, May 31 10:00 a.m. PT Speakers: Holly Roberts, Artist MOPA@SDMA Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater   Attention, art enthusiasts! The San Diego Museum of Art Docent Council is hosting the trailblazing artist Holly Roberts, whose work masterfully blends photography and painting to create mysterious and intriguing pieces. For over four decades, Roberts has explored her rich inner world through her art. With a deep connection to nature, both human and animal, she was an early pioneer in mixing the mediums of painting and photography. From painting directly onto photographic surfaces to cutting and shaping photographs onto textured, painted canvases, there is a unifying thread that binds her innovative work. During this lecture, Roberts will provide insight into her creative process and the inspirations behind her evocative pieces that defy convention. Her artworks, which span from the 1980s until today, meld different media in a unique way to evoke universal human experiences and concerns. After the talk, Roberts will be available to sign copies of her newly published book, Storyteller: Work by Holly Roberts, a catalog showcasing 60 groundbreaking works from her groundbreaking career.   See works by Roberts in her solo exhibition, Storyteller: Work by Holly Roberts, on view at the Museum of Photographic Arts at The San Diego Museum of Art in The Schwartz Gallery.   Please note, this lecture is in-person only and held at the state-of-the-art MOPA@SDMA Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater in Balboa Park. $10 members and students | $15 seniors and military | $20 nonmembers   Save my spot!  
This lecture is presented as a part of the Guest Lecture Series, which focuses on works of art on view in the Museum as well as topics of interest in the broader art world. Sponsored by The San Diego Museum of Art Docent Council.   Featured: Holly Roberts with her work, Bucking Bronco, 2006. Image courtesy of the artist.
