Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute will hold gallery talks in July and August for two summer exhibitions, Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900 and Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye.

Women Artists in Paris talks occur daily from July 1–August 31 at 3:30 pm in the Clark Center galleries. Learn more about women artists who traveled from locations around the world to work in France during the second half of the nineteenth century—and about the obstacles they overcame to pursue their careers in the arts.

Gallery talks for Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye, the Clark’s inaugural video installation, occur Fridays and Sundays, July 1–August 31 at 12:30 pm in the galleries at the Lunder Center at Stone Hill. Join a member of the Clark’s education team for an in-depth look at the mesmerizing video exhibition and learn more about Steinkamp’s creative process.

In addition, the Clark holds daily talks in the permanent collection galleries, located in the Museum Building, in July and August at 11:15 am and 2 pm. These guided talks explore some of the Clark’s favorite works as well as the history of the Institute.

Talks are free with paid admission and are limited to twenty people each on a first-come, first-served basis. No talks will be held Sunday, July 8.
