Smithfield, N. C. Drawing from the word’s Greek origins—anthologia, literally “flower gathering”—this lecture focuses on the splendid floral still-life paintings in Still-Life Masterpieces: A Visual Feast from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. NCMA Director of Education Sandy Rusak previews selected works ranging from bountiful 17th-century Italian masterworks to the heady bouquets of the impressionists. Renoir and American greats such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Martin Johnson Heade are just a few of the outstanding artists featured in Rusak’s talk.
Registration is required. Lunch will follow the lecture in the Frank Creech Art Gallery. There is no charge for the lecture; however, there is a $10 charge for lunch.
