Explore “The Impressionist Garden” with art lecturer Rebecca Albiani!
7 p.m.on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Mercer Island Community and Events Center
Co-sponsored with the Mercer Island Arts Council.
“Gardens were an important motif of early Impressionist art, featuring prominently in the works of Monet, Renoir, Morisot and Cassatt. Much later in his career, Monet would create a garden at his home in Giverny, where he installed the famous Japanese bridge over a pond of waterlilies and painted them gloriously in his final decades.”
Albiani’s talk will feature numerous colorful depictions of gardens and art. Albiani has been a lecturer at the Frye Art Museum since 1997; her monthly art history lecture series has drawn such enthusiastic crowds that she gives each lecture three times. She graduated with honors from University of California, Berkeley and earned her master’s degree in art history at Stanford. She was a Fulbright scholar and received numerous honors and grants.
Admission is $10; refreshments will be served.
