Hi. I’m Brooke. I am an author and an art appreciater. I have dabbled in art and graphic design, but I never really was interested in galleries, museums or even fine art until just recently. I had the typical notion that it was old news and that museums were boring until I started researching Hugh Lane.
Reading about these artists made me see them in a whole new light. These paragons of the Arts…Rodin, Monet, John Singer Sargent; and writers like George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats …were all as unruly as I am!
Hearing the stories of these peoples’ lives was amazing. You really can’t make this stuff up. I found out two things that were pretty revolutionary in my appreciation of art.
1.”History” really wasn’t that long ago.
2. I found out that a good story can change my opinion of a work of art.
The mission of Let’s Talk Art With Brooke is to advocate the exhibition and accessibility of artwork, by promoting galleries and artists.
I wanted to learn all I could about art and artists in general [historic and current]. Should I take a course? Get an MFA? Why not speak directly to the experts.
So that’s what I did. Surprise! They all wanted to talk to me as well and tell their stories. That was in 2016 and it’s still going!
On Aug. 13, 2021, I found out I made the Feedspot Top 15 Art History Podcasts list!!!! [& I’ve been on it at every year since then] How cool is that??
