January 18 Art Encounters: The Power of Color
10:30–11:30 am

Art Encounters offers guided tours of Joslyn's collections and special exhibitions on the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 10:30 am. Designed to appeal to all art lovers, from the well-seasoned to the amateur, these monthly programs are a great way to learn about art with others.


Color has the power to convey a rainbow of human emotion, from the brightest joy to the most shadowy fear.  Color is the essence of landscape, of mood, of our whole perception of the physical world.  Join us for a look at how artists, such as Henri Matisse, have engaged with that most powerful element of art: COLOR.

What's Pictured:

Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954), Head of a Woman, 1917
