Artist Lecture with April Gornik

I think it's so important for people to be taught
 what makes art powerful.
~ Painter and Printmaker April Gornik

Find an hour to listen to this informative lecture by American painter April Gornik. Using many images of her work, including her drawings, Gornik talks about her artistic process, sources of influence and inspiration (nature especially), concept of "binaries", materials, thematic details, and specific land-, sky-, and seascapes, including Virga, a recent addition to Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection. 

Delivered at SAAM, Washington, D.C., on April 1 of this year, the lecture is the second honoring James F. Dicke II, the lecture sponsor.
