Art History Programs
Between 2014 - 2017, I developed four sequential Introduction to Art History programs for libraries and other cultural institutions. Each series is focused on a specific art historical period: Early Italian Renaissance, High Italian Renaissance, Venetian Renaissance, and the Northern Renaissance. These series were offered three times per year at the Islip Art Museum & Islip Arts Council.
In 2017, I created a standalone, non-sequential, Art Talks program, in which I lecture on the life and art of a specific artist. I have previously presented these lectures in-person and virtually at the following: Patchogue-Medford Library, Comsewogue Public Library, East Islip Public Library, the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, East Hampton Library, Harborfields Public Library, Port Jefferson Free Library, Central Islip Public Library, Copiague Public Memorial Library, Amityville Public Library, Sachem Public Library, The Smithtown Library, Huntington Public Library, Cold Spring Harbor Library, Commack Public Library, Northport-East Northport Public Library, Glen Cove Public Library, Hillside Public Library, Hauppauge Public Library and Peninsula Public Library.
In the fall of 2020, I was invited to speak on the artists Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael, for the course History of Art: Foundational Survey, offered through the Department of Social Sciences and Liberal Arts at the Institute of Business Administration in Karachi, Pakistan.
In the spring of 2021, I was a guest on the podcast, Ranks For Everything, where the host and I had an informal discussion about some of our favorite painters throughout art history.
In the summer of 2022, I spoke to the membership of the South Bay Art Association on the Dutch Golden Age of Painting and served as a Juror in their 2nd Annual Plien Air Event.
