Learn about symbolic references in fine art

There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to fine art. There are often symbolic references incorporated into the pieces by the artists that give them even deeper meaning once the viewer sees and understands them. Artist and college instructor Bill Mannion will discuss these symbols and more in "Artists’ Reflections on Nature" at Westlake Porter Public Library on Friday, Dec. 5, from 2-4 p.m.

Mannion will share images of art treasures from throughout the centuries and discuss the artists who created them, their inspirations and the symbolic references incorporated in the pieces, as well as the historical and cultural events that occurred during the time they worked.

Mannion is an award-winning artist and has taught painting, drawing and art analysis at Malone University, where he is an adjunct professor. He has an MBA and an MFA.
