About Our Opening Presentation
Art Dealer, Scholar & [yes definitely] Humorist!
Recently semi-retired after thirty five years as a bi-coastal fine art dealer, Kevin has worn many hats in his life experience including child, being a New Yorker, Institutional Stock Broker, Vietnam Combat Engineer, Art School Student, Fine Art Gallerist, Museum Exhibition Curator and Co-curator and contributor to many fine art books and publications.
Kevin co-curated a nationally recognized museum exhibition “Something Revealed” recently mounted at the Pasadena Museum of History, based on the four volume set of books featuring three hundred and twenty creative and talented, little known California Women Artists entitled, “Emerging From The Shadows” (Schiffer Publications). It very recently closed after a long, very successful run with record breaking museum attendance and outstanding reviews in national art publications. Multiple lectures at the Museum and the Pasadena Public Library were standouts and standing room only for several events highlighting both Phases I and II of this most unusual presentation of underappreciated but outstanding female artistic talent.
Kevin Casey was a previous presenter to the Salon in June 2018 covering the subject of “Humor” entitled “You Know When You’re In California When….”. It was preceded first by a study of different views of humor from disparate cultures. The subject of “Humor” will once again be covered in another Salon presentation on June 9th featuring an aspect of humor, again in two presentation parts, that has been rarely discussed and will perhaps be somewhat controversial although still humorous to those with an open mind.
Remember that in a recent Salon, guest speaker Professor Douglas E. Noble, FAIA, PhD, School of Architecture, USC, called Kevin “The Smartest Man in the Room.” What else need be said?
Salon attendees are once again invited to bring along a humorous anecdote, object, song or another example of “Humor” as seen from their own personal perspective. Kevin adds, “No participation in dancing ‘The Hokey Pokey’ or other novelty dances will be required although attendance will be taken and will count towards your final grade.”
Please let me know if you can attend The Salon on June 9, 2019.
