LECTURE: TIMOTHY JONES, "G.K. CHESTERTON AND THE ART OF THE MODERNS"
 

 
TIME:
 
May 14, 2016    7:00 PM       
 
EVENT DESCRIPTION:
 
Join us for this, the fifth in a series of lectures for 2016, entitled "In the Beauty of Holiness: Art, Architecture, and the Transcendent"
 
Timothy Jones will explore the beginnings of modern art and its animus against the Academic tradition. He will delve into what he sees are mistakes traditionalists can make in assessing modern art, as well as some mistakes proponents of modernism make and have made.  
 
Timothy Jones spent his first 14 years in Alaska, where he developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Alaskan landscape and a love for making art. 
 
The family then moved to Arkansas, where he earned bachelor's and master's degrees in fine art. Since 2004, after a number of years as a designer and illustrator, Tim has been building a portfolio primarily of classical realist still life painting. He is fortunate to have lived near and studied with a few well-known realist painters. His art has received local, regional and national recognition in shows and competitions such as those of the Art Renewal Center, Oil Painters of America, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, and others. 
 
He now lives with his family in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he paints and teaches classical art at the Chesterton Academy, a private high school. 
 
Following the lecture, there will be a light reception with an opportunity to greet the speaker.
