Ekphrasis – A Monthly Book Club About Art
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Irish Game by Matthew Hart. In the annals of art theft, no case has matched—for sheer criminal panache—the heist at Ireland’s Russborough House in 1986. The Irish police knew right away that the mastermind was a Dublin gangster named Martin Cahill. Yet the great plunder —including a Gainsborough, a Goya, two paintings by Rubens, and a Vermeer— remained missing for years.

Fleischman Lecture 2014
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In our 25th year in the Blount Cultural Park, we invite you to join us in celebrating a favorite artist in the Blount Collection, John Singer Sargent. Following a reception, guest lecturer Erica Hirshler of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston will explore Sargent’s images of women, from his celebrated and controversial portrait of Madame X to the MMFA’s own glamorous likeness of Henriette Goldschmidt Raphael. Dr. Hirshler’s many contributions to the field of Sargent scholarship include co-curating the current popular exhibition John Singer Sargent Watercolors; she is also the author of Sargent’s Daughters, a biography of the MFA’s beloved masterpiece, The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit.
The Fleischman Lecture Series is sponsored by the Carolyn and Winton Blount Endowment in honor of Larry Fleischman, a dynamic specialist and leader in the field of American art. As president of Kennedy Galleries of New York, Fleischman played a role in many innovative ventures, raising international awareness of issues concerning American art. He served as a member of the Fine Arts Advisory Committee of the White House, co-founded the Archives of American Art (now part of the Smithsonian), and founded and published The American Art Journal. During the 1950s, along with his wife, Mr. Fleischman amassed one of the nation’s earliest collections of significant American art.

EX-RaySmith-install

Gallery Talk and Book-Signing by Ray Smith
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

A grand adventure is always worth revisiting. In 1974, Ray Smith traveled around the U. S. for months, photographing people and places along the way. Smith says, “photography…is more closely related to literature, especially fiction…than it is to the other visual arts. Whether the location is a city sidewalk, a back yard, a roadside, or a door front, for me the portrait is primary, and the photograph is a short story exploding beyond its frame.”

Please join the artist to discuss the photographs in the exhibition In Time We Shall Know Ourselves: Photographs by Raymond Smith, followed by a book-signing of the catalog, which illustrates all 52 photos with essays by Richard King and Alexander Nemerov.

Universally recognized as a symbol of Western democracy, the Parthenon emerges in Connelly’s bold new analysis as a shrine memorializing myths radically alien to modern politics. Newly recovered classical literary texts and surprising archaeological finds compel readers to acknowledge the implausibility of the usual interpretation of the Parthenon’s frieze sculptures as a depiction of fifth-century Athenians celebrating their Panathenaic Festival.

Evening with the Curator: Into the Light: Edward Hopper’s Watercolor Practice
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, Curator of Art, will discuss the two major examples of Edward Hopper’s watercolors in the Blount Collection: Bow of the Beam Trawler, Widgeon, 1926 and Light at Two Lights, 1927. These two rarely seen examples of Hopper’s work reflect his interest in maritime life and the sea. Raised in Nyack, New York on the Hudson River, he had a life-long interest in water and activities associated with it, including the effects of light as reflected by bodies of water. Ms. Ausfeld will discuss Hopper’s use of the medium and will place his works in the context of other important American watercolorists of the early twentieth century.
