Join us at13th Street Gallery for “ART & GEORGIAN BAY – Q&A” with legendary artist Joseph Drapell, who’s work can be found in major museums, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the British Museum in London, Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna, and the National Gallery in Prague.
Joseph Drapell, an important abstract painter and contemporary of the Painters Eleven, was born in Czechoslovakia in 1940. In the wake of World War II and the totalitarian system of the Soviet Union, Drapell immigrated to Canada, arriving in Halifax in 1966. From 1968-1970 he studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Like Alex Cameron and other artists in John Mann’s Collection, Drapell was also greatly influenced by Canadian artist Jack Bush and American critic Clement Greenberg.
Followed by audience Q&A.
