American Memory in Stone and steel: National Monuments of Tragedy and Triumph

Free

with Chuck Tampio

Calendar Next session starts Nov 14, 2019 at 5 pm

America in Stone and Steel is a multimedia presentation that focuses on monuments and memorials around the world and investigates their current meaning, often in contrast with their original intent.  They are examined both as important works of public art, as well as strong cultural statements.  Behind the scenes stories illuminate such icons as the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial and the pyramids of Egypt.

Charles Tampio moved to Tucson after 25 years in Washington, D.C. where he held a variety of jobs in education and environmental nonprofits.  He was President of Earthforce and vice president of the Close Up Foundation and is currently president of Levelor Foundation, a charitable organization.  He is a docent at the Tucson Museum of Art and has given record setting presentations in Tucson and all over the country.   Amoung his other accomplishment, he was the first anchor for C-SPAN.

The Tubac Center of the Arts presents the Art Speaks series: fun, informatiove, and interesting investigations about arts to our community.  Join these levely conversations about visual art, photography, masterpieces, curation, costume, and set design, archtecture, and more.  The series features artists, art historians, and art enthusiats.  

Talks in this series are free for TCA members and an $8 donation is suggested for general public attendance.

Lian's workshop First day:

Chinese painting session. Students learn how to use Chinese brushes, ink and colors, as well as theories of the Asian Art. You will learn to use the spontaneous style painting technique (not painting subjects like bamboo, chrysanthemum, orchid, nor plum blossom).

Next two-days: Watercolor painting. Lian teaches basic techniques such as compositions and coloring, and his unique methods including "Color Pouring and Blending" and "Paint Around (negative painting)". He shows you how to mix colors on watercolor paper, as well as letting the pigments paint themselves. Only three primary colors will be used. 

Lian Quan Zhen is a sought-after watercolor and Chinese painting artist and teacher in the US and abroad. He is one of the most popular authors of North Light Books.

He started sketching and painting in his childhood and continued as hobby while practicing as a family physician in Canton Province, China. After immigrating to the US in 1985, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree from University of California at Berkeley in 1992 and a Master of Architecture Degree from MIT in 1996.
