What Makes a Painting a “Work of Art”?

March 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Art Appreciation is the knowledge and understanding of the timeless qualities that identify great art. Jean Wetta’s informal two-hour program is an art appreciation class with slides and discussion.  Its purpose is to increase our understanding of what makes great art in general and what makes John F. Peto a great artist in particular.

Jean Wetta is an artist living on the Jersey Shore. Her undergraduate degree is in art from Webster College in St. Louis, MO and her masters is in painting from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.  She taught painting and art history for ten years before becoming the Director of the College of the Mainland Art Gallery in the Houston area.  Eleanor Jones Harvey, Chief Curator of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution, wrote the introduction to a retrospective of her work in 1999 and in 2000. Jean was an artist in residence at the Centre D’Etudes D’Architecture, Saintes, France. Her work is in a number of museums and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and The Contemporary Museum of Honolulu.  Her primary gallery is Moody Gallery, Houston, Texas.
