Breaking many of the rules of Renaissance art in his struggle to express his inner experience of the divine, Michelangelo gave artists a new artistic vocabulary that moved past the Renaissance and toward a profoundly relevant style that ultimately is called Modern art.
In the upcoming course, Michelangelo and the Dawn of Modern Art, the artist’s legacy will be explored through three lectures and a field trip to the Getty Villa.
Instructor Rebbeca Ginnings tells us a bit more about it:
Why is this course important for my understanding of art?
In terms of technique, Michelangelo seems to turn stone to flesh. Design-wise, he translates antiquity into a more modern statement, providing a bridge or transition to modern art. A better understanding of Michelangelo and his work leads us to understand how his work has influenced both European and American artists.
What will the course consist of?
We will meet for three lectures on Michelangelo’s work followed by a field trip to the Getty Villa to look at prototypes of Michelangelo’s designs, to see how the originals related to the designs he ended up making.
What will I take away from this course?
Students will gain a better understanding of the influence of antiquity on Western art.
Enroll in Michelangelo and the Dawn of Modern Art today!

OPENING RECEPTION, SATURDAY MARCH 12, 6-8 PM
In the first floor gallery space Ochi Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibition titled, Reverie, by Stephanie Pryor. The exhibition will be on view from March 12th to April 16th with an opening reception on March 12th from 6-8 pm.
Stephanie Pryor’s latest abstractions explore the artist’s attention to process and material. After investigations into making figurative and landscape paintings over the past several years, Pryor returns to abstraction with a renewed energy that retains her interest in the representational. Relying on her intuition and ability to masterfully handle paint, Pryor builds layers of stains, integrating micro glitter and foil to add depth and dynamism. Paint seems to float off the canvas in these latest abstractions, evoking a lyricism that gives the paintings an emotional profundity and poetic intelligence. With the spirituality of a Kandinsky and the sensuality of a Georgia O’Keefe, Pryor’s abstract stain paintings seem to vacillate between the abstract and the real, the physical and the emotional. Gentle in their allure, their pull is nevertheless powerful, as these paintings are explorations into beauty and the power of painting to convey the emotive.
