Sunday, July 15th from 2 – 4pm, artist Noyes Capehart will be at the Art Cellar Gallery for our popular Sunday Afternoons with the Artists series. During this special event with the artist, Noyes Capehart will give his personal thoughts and ideas on the “meaning” of art and what art means to the viewer.
An Approach to the Meaning of Art will delve into the artist’s ideals of why certain works of art can be profound. The viewer may not connect with or understand what that specific meaning is without having been told the reasoning for the piece. If one is to ask Noyes Capehart what his art means, he will reply that he is not the one to answer, the viewer is. He does not accept the premise of a singular meaning for a work of art or a “one-size fits all” position. Capehart believes that a work of art portrays the artist’s feelings. The artist brings a lifetime of knowledge to the making of a piece and experiences that may well have contributed to the forming of a personal meaning for the artist. When a viewer sees the work, they may have a different, yet equally valid meaning from the work that is derived from their own personal feelings or experiences. Reliving his roots as a professor at Appalachian State University, this is a rare opportunity to listen to the unique views and deep understanding of the art world as seen through the eyes of Noyes Capehart.
Please join us at the Art Cellar Gallery Sunday, July 15th from 2-4pm for this special artist talk and book signing with Noyes Capehart. This event is free and open to the public.
