6:15 PM Life and Art of Gloria Torrice-Part I
A retrospective on the life and art of
Gloria Torrice presented by her
daughter, Liana Dix, in two parts.
Part I covers her rich history in art
and textiles. Ms. Torrice’s work spans
her already long life. As recently as
2006 Ms. Torrice was congratulated
in the ECS newsletter “for having
been awarded an artists grant to
study at the prestigious Vermont
Studio Center!” She was remembered
at that time as “our first artist in
residence when we held classes at the
Ethical Society, some 40 years ago,
for children, teens and adults.”
7:15 PM Salon with wine, coffee, tea, cheese, & bread
A donation to help defray costs will be accepted but NOT required.
7:45 PM Life and Art of Gloria Torrice-Part II
In Part II, Ms. Dix covers her mother’s colorful even flamboyant personal life
as an artist. Ms. Torrice was a classmate and friend of equally gifted
contemporary artists of her period, including Jackson Pollack. This will be
art history close and upfront. You do not want to miss it!
