Monet As a Draftsman: Between Drawing and Pictorial Invention

with Marianne Mathieu
Thursday, December 12, 2019 - 6:00pm7:00pm.

The reproduction of fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926).

Like no other Impressionist, he explored the topography and the specific lighting moods of different locations, from the metropolis of Paris to the remote Seine villages of Vétheuil and Giverny.

This lecture by Marianne Mathieu will explore the evolution of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s with a focus on the places - both at home and on the road - from which he drew inspiration for his painting.

Doors open at 5:45 pm. More

Anthony McCall, Split Second (Mirror)
Event: Programs & Lectures

Logan Lecture: Anthony McCall

Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 6:00pm7:00pm.

Anthony McCall’s signature materials of light and time explore the boundary between film and sculpture. Beginning in 1973, McCall developed the experiential "Solid Light" series. A beam of projected light slowly evolves in the same space as the viewer.

His experimental films that incorporate installation, drawing, performance, and sculpture have been featured at museums throughout the US and Europe, with a solo exhibition closing in November at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York.

London-born McCall lives and works in New York.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. More

Impressionist Cats and Dogs

with James H. Rubin
Friday, November 15, 2019 - 2:00pm3:00pm.

Many Impressionist paintings of modern life include household pets. They not only add charm to many pictures, their growing presence as family members alludes to middle-class leisure and prosperity.

It is not unusual to discover that these often unnoticed domestic denizens complement representations of their owners, alluding to their lives in various ways.

In some special cases, the devotion of certain artists to their pets reveals aspects of their aims and artistic identity, as well. More
