Recently Acquired Old Master Drawing Explored at December 14 Looking at Lunchtime Talk at the Clark
For Immediate Release
November 30, 2006
The recently acquired drawing The Annunciation, c. 1568, by Luca Cambiaso, is the subject of the next Looking at Lunchtime Talk at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. On Thursday, December 14 at 12:30 pm, Michael Cassin, curator of education, will discuss this work and its history during a half hour gallery talk. This talk is free.
The Clark has benefited from the generosity of many benefactors over the years. The Annunciation is one of several works on paper on display through January 7 during Works on Paper: A Selection of Recent Gifts, which celebrates some of the recent gifts to the Clark’s permanent collection of prints, drawings and photographs. With just a few touches of his pen and two or three washes of ink, the artist has conjured a wonderfully dynamic image of the Archangel Gabriel appearing to the Virgin Mary.
Cassin will kick off the 2007 Looking at Lunchtime Talks with Alfred Sisley’s painting Landscape: Snow Scene on Thursday, January 11. The talks take place at 12:30 pm on the second Thursday of every month. Attendees may purchase food from the courtyard café or bring a bag lunch to enjoy before or after the gallery talk.
The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission June 1 through October 31 is $12.50 for adults, free for children 18 and under, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
