illustrated history of portraiture with olena babak

November 1, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

- Free

Lecture and discussion with artist Olena Babak.

Olena Babak is a classically trained artist who moved to Maine from North Carolina where she attended a private art atelier. She is trained in the academic traditions of the French and Russian schools where significant emphasis is put on direct observation and pushing the limits of lighting and color in the process of capturing mood in ever changing surroundings.

Babak will discuss the history of portraiture from the early renaissance to contemporary art. She will discuss some of the techniques used in the past and the role of portraiture in society. Olena is an award winning artist whose landscapes and figurative works can be found in the Albin Polasek museum and number of private collections and galleries in the U.S. and abroad.
