Immaculata University Presents Art Lecture Series

Immaculata University will feature an art lecture series that includes two lectures on February 6, and February 7, 2007. Lisa Hanover, a Collegeville, PA resident, will present "Art: How Do You See It?" on Tuesday, February 6, at 7 p.m. in Alumnae Hall, Classroom 10, and Mary Ann Weselyk of Unionville, PA will present "Four O´clock Coffee" on Wednesday, February 7, at 4 p.m. in Alumnae Hall. The lecture series will run during the 24th Annual Immaculata University Art Show, which opens Friday, February 2, 2007, with a premier ticketed reception from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., and runs free of charge from Saturday, February 3, through Sunday, February 11, in Alumnae Hall and the Faculty Center.
"Art: How Do You See It?" will cover tips for the beginner art collector, the basics of building a collection, and art appreciation. Lisa Tremper Hanover, director of the Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College since 1987, will present the lecture, which will be followed up with a Q&A session. Former president for the Association of College and University Museums & Galleries and Board of Directors, Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations, Ms. Hanover received a BA in art history, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Richmond, Virginia, and an MA in art history from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. She earned recognition and several awards, has served on the Board of Directors for the Wood Turning Center of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Wayne Art Center and worked as a consultant or juror on numerous regional and national conferences. Ms. Hanover has presented public lectures to numerous professional organizations and regional art centers and museums.
"Four O´clock Coffee" will be an informal presentation rather than a lecture, with Mary Ann Weselyk discussing the art she has displayed and giving a small guided tour of her collection. Ms. Weselyk is this year´s featured artist in the Immaculata University Art Show. A participant in the Immaculata University Art Show since 1999, Ms. Weselyk is a full-time artist who specializes in oil paintings, but occasionally branches out to acrylic and monotypes. Her studies include extensive work in impressionism, post-impressionism, and the modern revolutionary movements. During her career, Ms. Weselyk, who was trained by Ray Dijohn, has received many awards, and her works have been displayed and owned locally and throughout the world.
