In conjunction with Fifty Years of Bay Area Art: The SECA Awards, we’ve restyled our weekly in-gallery talks with a superb lineup of past SECA Art awardees. Each Thursday at 6:30 p.m. an artist talks about something on view. Last week, Kathryn VanDyke (2000 SECA Art Award) talked about Agnes Martin and her painting Falling Blue:
Kathryn VanDyke on Agnes Martin’s Falling Blue.
Kathryn VanDyke (2000 SECA Art Award) received her MFA from Yale School of Art in 1993. She currently shows with Stephen Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco.
Tomorrow night: Maria Porges on Janine Antoni’s Lick and Lather.

DON’T MISS THESE! Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. Talks last 20 minutes and are free with museum admission — which is half-price Thursday eves, or of course, totally free if you’re a member. If you can’t make it into the galleries, check back here on Wednesdays: we’ll record and post the audio to Open Space each week.
