Kevin Sloan, Our Gentle Giant

Please join Lynn Farrand, Senior Curator at the California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) for a special guided tour of Kevin Sloan: A Collection of Rarities exhibition currently on view in the main gallery.

Learn more about Sloan’s allegorical realism, a term he has coined to refer to his use of objects and environments that are painted in a realistic way but because of the inclusion of unexpected elements, the narrative in the work takes on an allegorical quality.

Also, take a moment with Lynn to examine Sloan’s technique, his use of color and pattern, his composition, all geared to make us marvel at the wonder of the natural world which surrounds us.

CMATO Members: FREE

Non-Members: Included with General Admission
