Claude Monet's Life Revealed During "Artist Café" on April 20 at the Clark

For Immediate Release

April 04, 2006

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute's "Artist Cafe" series, celebrating the lives of famous artists, wraps up on Thursday, April 20.  The series features an informal talk by assistant curator of education Danielle Steinmann, a different signature drink inspired by the artist's birthplace, and a cash bar and light snacks.  The admission price includes one drink. Held from 6 to 8 pm, the evening also includes social time and gallery viewing.  Tickets are $15 per talk ($12 for members) and may be reserved by calling the Clark box office at 413-458-0524 or purchased at the door.

April 20 features "The Atmospheric Life of Claude Monet."  In this last installment of the series, get the scoop on the unique life of Monet, a member of the Impressionist movement.  Looking at his ethereal paintings of nature and light, it would be easy to imagine that Monet lived a quiet life painting outdoors in his garden.  But, like the other Impressionists, he was no stranger to strife and intrigue in his personal life.  Steinmann's lecture opens the door to Monet's private life and public work.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August).  Admission is free November through May.  Admission June 1 through October 31 is $10 for adults, free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID.  For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit
