A former architect and teacher with a passion for art history will fascinate a sold-out audience at the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery when he gives a public lecture titled, ‘What’s Real and What’s Not?’
Dennis Panchaud’s lecture from 6.30pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday 29 May will be the third of eight in the 2013 USC Gallery Art and Architecture Lecture Series.
USC Gallery Curator Dawn Oelrich said the series was only in its second year and lectures were booking out.
Art, Architecture and Design Technology Lecturer Mr Panchaud is a retired teacher, systems coordinator and project manager who trained originally as an architect in the United Kingdom before moving to teaching in the 1970s.
“He has created a loyal audience from his time as a volunteer lecturer in art history and philosophy at the U3A on the Sunshine Coast,” Ms Oelrich said.
She said the lectures aimed to encourage people’s appreciation for visual art and see deeper meaning in challenging or difficult art works.
The fourth lecture on Wednesday 26 June will be ‘Reintegrating art and architecture’ by Dr Phillip Daffara.
The series is supported by Chris Harris of Ord Minnett, Buderim and entry is by gold coin donation. Lectures start promptly at 6.30pm.
Staff, students and visitors are welcome but space is limited so bookings essential. To book or for more information call Lou Jaeger on 5456 5746 or email email@example.com.
