PMCA 1234: Second Saturday Spotlight Talk

Spotlight Talks take place on the second Saturday of every month at 2:00pm. A PMCA docent leads an engaging and insightful 20-minute discussion about a work of art currently on view in our Main Gallery exhibition E. Charlton Fortune: The Colorful Spirit.

This month’s focus: Above the Town (Monterey Bay)

Characteristic of many paintings of trailblazing and progressive female artist E. Charlton Fortune, Above the Town (Monterey Bay) features unaccompanied women. Discuss what this might have meant to the artist and her audience in 1918 as well as Fortune’s use of color and composition and her time spent in Monterey. 

Note: Spotlight Talks meet near the exhibition title wall.

Presented as part of our PMCA 1234 monthly programming.
Free for PMCA members. Free with admission. Children 12 and under are always free!
