Art and Drinks evening with Toby Wright - 9th March
Painting in the Arctic, drawing animals underwater, painting and sketching at 4000m – a talk by Toby Wright on Thursday 9th March at 18.30
We are lucky to have the opportunity to meet with and hear Toby Wright, professional artist based in Monaco. The name Wright will be known to many members as the family has been in Monaco for 3 generations.
Toby has offered to talk about his expeditions painting in the extremes. In particular, his recent project where he takes his easel to heights of over 3500m into the high Alps, to paint in the footsteps of the great masters of the past.
In an effort to learn how to paint better landscapes, he decided to study the artists of the past 4 centuries who have ventured into the high Alps. Painters such as Turner, Sargent, Compton, and many others. In finding their spots, and painting exactly from their vantage point he learned more about how to paint these inspiring landscapes. By painting today in the same place as another artist painted over a century ago, he saw big changes. While the rocks remain unchanged, the glaciers have transformed. The glaciers have not only moved, but have lost so much ice that some valleys are almost unrecognisable.
The talk will take place in his new studio, 5 rue de la source Monaco, with a slideshow, occasional videos and Toby narrating.
Places are limited. Drinks and refreshments will be provided. 10€ per member (pay on the door). Please send email if you would like to attend on bam@monaco or call 93501952
