SECA 50th Anniversary Artist-on-Artist Talks: Kathryn VanDyke on Agnes Martin

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:

Agnes Martin, _Falling Blue_, 1963
