Winners will be recognized at a celebration held at The Point on Friday, October 27, 2023, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The 2023 featured speaker is Dr. Laura Evans, associate professor, University of North Texas College of Visual Arts & Design. Evans’ presentation “F is for Fake: Han van Meegeren and the Vermeer Forgeries,” will focus on Henricus Antoniu “Han” van Meegeren, who is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished and beloved art forgers of all time. Van Meegeren specialized in creating work in the style of Vermeer, “rediscovering” lost work by this famed painter (that he had really painted), and selling it to collectors, curators, and even the Third Reich. In this lecture, Evans will dive into van Meegeren’s complex forgery schemes and how he eventually earned fame and immortality as one of history’s most loved art forgers. RSVPs are required at or call 214-841-2831.
