Panel to discuss contemporary abstract art practice

With a retrospective of major Canadian abstractionists as a backdrop, a panel will discuss the topic “Unpacking Abstract Art Practices Today” Saturday at the Art Gallery of Windsor.

Part of the Alone + Together visiting artist lecture series, the event will feature art historian and critic Karen Wilkin joining artists Luanne Martineau and John Kissick, both of whom have exhibitions currently on display at the gallery. Roald Nasgaard, author of Abstract Painting in Canada and professor contemporary art at Florida State University, will act as moderator.

The discussion begins at noon at the gallery, 401 Riverside Drive West. Admission is $7, free for AGW members and children 12 and under.
