FRAMINGHAM – The Gateway Camera Club hosts Photography & Painting: A Sibling Rivalry in Focus by Ivy Cubell on October 5 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. via Zoom.
FROM NOW ON, PAINTING IS DEAD!” exclaimed French painter Paul Delarocheupon seeing the world’s first photograph in 1839.
Before photography, painters had the sole role in visually recording the world. With the sudden birth of photography, many painters understandably feared the camera and worried whether photography was destined to replace painting. But the most innovative painters suddenly felt free to experiment and expand their creative vision away from traditional representation to increasing abstraction of form.
This presentation will explore the continual push pull relationship that developed between photography and painting, the ways the two arts have influenced each other through so many shared movements, with a focus, in particular, on the last 100 years.
Cubell is passionate about art and history and making connections between the two. As a Gallery Instructor at the Museum of Fine Arts since 2002, she leads specially-themed tours for both student and adult groups, develops tours and training curricula for MFA docents, and leads professional development teacher workshops. In addition to degrees in art history, she holds an MSW and a JD.
