Anne Belov Presentation

SCBWI member Anne Belov will be giving a presentation at the Freeland Library (on Whidbey Island): "Art Forgery for Fun and Profit, or what Makes Great Art Great", this Sunday February 20, at 2 p.m. Anne will discuss what painters (and illustrators!) can learn from copying the great works of art. As the artist responsible for about a third of the show, Anne knows what she's talking about. This talk is in conjunction with an exhibit, "Forgeries from the Froggwell Collection," now on view at the library. Come see the show. You'll swear you're at the Tate Britain. Among the paintings copied, see works "by" Vermeer, John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas, J.M. Whistler, and much more! For directions to the library, visit the library webpage.
