In conjunction with Goltzius and the Third Dimension, the Clark is offering a wide variety of special events, including gallery talks, lectures, and a mini-course on printmaking.

Desert Island Sculpture Gallery Talks
In honor of Goltzius and the Third Dimension, the popular lunchtime "Desert Island" lecture series will explore sculptures in the Clark collection. On the second Thursday of each month, Clark curators will discuss which sculptures they would want with them if they were "stranded on a desert island." Visitors are welcome to bring a bag lunch or purchase lunch in the Clark café before or after each half-hour talk. The talks are free with gallery admission.

"Making a Good Impression: A Short History of Printmaking Techniques"
What is the difference between an engraving and an etching? How is a lithograph made? The Clark's four-part mini-course, offered in conjunction with the exhibition Goltzius and the Third Dimension, will answer these questions, providing an introduction to the history of printmaking from early relief printing to photography. After each talk the Print Room will be open for anyone attending the lectures to look at a small display of related works from the Clark's permanent collection. 

Participants may register for the entire course or for individual sessions by calling 413-458-0563. Cost for the entire course is $18 for members, $22 for non-members. Individual talks are $5 for members, $6 for non-members. Lunch will be available for purchase in the café prior to the course.
