    Art History From a Queer Perspective: The Post Impressionists

    Class_1_Dec_5.jpg

    Art History from a Queer Perspective Series 5 of four classes, Winter 2019-2020  Four stand alone free classes in a row, 6pm to 8pm (doors open at 5:30pm) in the Community Room of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.  Open to EVERYONE, FREE, no registration - just walk in, no prior knowledge of art history necessary, no need to attend every class if your schedule does not permit - each class is stand alone. AND THEMED SNACKS WILL BE PROVIDED!!!

    Class 1 — Thursday, December 5, 2019
    Mary Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Modersohn-Becker, Van Gogh, Gauguin, and why Renoir is dull
    Brilliant painter Mary Cassatt was the only women included in the earliest shows of the French Impressionists. She, and Paula Modersohn-Becker, and the very few other single, professionally trained women artists working in Paris in the late 19th century were part of the “New Woman” movement. Was she able to advance and flourish in part because she lived an asexual life, or was “New Woman” code for Queer? Meanwhile brilliant Post Impressionist Vincent Van Gogh’s relationship with exotic painter and somewhat creepy human Paul Gauguin, might had been more than just painting buddies. And then there’s Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who was best friends with the Lesbian sex workers who lived in the brothel he also called home. Come to this class, consider these artists from a Queer Perspective, and also see why I think Impressionist painter Auguste Renoir is kind of dull. And of course there will be fabulous snacks by Trish Sullivan!

    Sit back, view slides, listen, learn about and discuss the lives and work of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer artists. Consider the LGBTQ imagery of mainstream artists in various periods of history. And after the class there is also a social opportunity with themed snacks, to discuss interesting things with old friends, or meet new ones in this exciting free 4 session class at the LGBT Community Center. This is a popular class attended by a diverse and intergenerational group of about 40-45 LGBTQA folks per class. It’s fun and funny - a good place to bring old friends, or meet new friends, or bring someone on a nice first date!

    Instructor: Liz Bradbury, MFA. For more information, email her at liz@bradburysullivancenter.org

    This is a sober social event at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. No alcohol will be served.

    Author talk: Todd Sweeney: The Fiend of Fleet High

    Todd_Sweeney_book_event.png

    The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents an evening with David Pratt author of Todd Sweeney: The Fiend of Fleet High, which Jim Gladstone of Passport Magazine has called "a discomfortingly delicious new novel that reads like a lost John Waters movie." A book signing and dessert reception will follow the reading.

    About the book: Every boy needs an ally who will kill for him. And no boy could have a better ally than Todd Sweeney. When Todd's best friend, Toby Ragg, is threatened by guidance counselor Ashford Squeers, Todd swings into action. But he swings just a bit too hard. Enter best pal Nellie Lovett, who has very creative ideas for making the mess disappear. But then Fleet High bad boy Ryan Plouf threatens Toby and Nellie. Suddenly, Ryan is missing, too, and local cop Tarron Littey is asking some very inconvenient questions. Meanwhile, Toby's parents threaten to put him in a gay conversion camp. Can Todd and Nellie save Toby before the cops discover just what happened to Fleet High's worst? To find out, dig in and devour Todd Sweeney. And yes, it's okay to use your hands.

    About the author: David Pratt is the author of the novel "Bob the Book" (2010, Lambda Literary Award winner,) and a collection of stories, "My Movie" (2012) one of which became the basis for his 2014 novel "Looking After Joey." His young adult novel, "Wallaçonia," followed in 2017. In 2018 David founded Hosta Press, which is bringing out his contemporary new adult satire, "Todd Sweeney: The Fiend of Fleet High." David has performed his work for the theater at many venues in New York City, including Dixon Place, HERE, the Duplex, the Cornelia Street Cafe and the NY International Fringe Festival. In 2018 collaborated with Michigan artist Nicholas Williams on a performance piece, "TIME," at the Forge in Detroit.
