Lecture: Peter Hassrick: The Studios of Joseph Henry Sharp

Arthur Bell Auditorium


The Couse Foundation and the Harwood Museum of Art present a lecture by Peter Hassrick, Director Emeritus and Senior Scholar, Buffalo Bill Center of the West.  Describing the scope of his talk, Hassrick writes “Over the years of Sharp's illustrious and extended career as a painter, he inhabited a great number and variety of studios, from Paris and Madrid to Ohio, Montana, New Mexico, California and Hawaii. Each studio had its own Sharp-imposed, peculiar character and, in addition, its own individual effect on him as an artist. This talk will explore Sharp's studios in context with artist ateliers of his day, their roles as creative, retail and social environments, their function as emblems of artistic stature as well as their importance in revealing to modern audiences the often forgotten element of the artist's process.”

Tickets are $10 for general and $8 for Museum and Couse foundation members. Doors open at 9:30 am
