A Painter’s Vision : A film by William Oberst 8PM
“The Painter’s Vision” offers a new approach to figurative art, focusing on how painters look at he things they paint, and how their vision anticipates the way you look at finished art. The 20 minute film shows how the painters’ special way of seeing mirrors your own vision in a very profound way.
