GREAT BARRINGTON--Michael Cassin, director of the Center for Education in the Visual Arts at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, will discuss the Clark’s current exhibit "Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History" at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. The lecture, which is the latest segment in an ongoing collaboration between the Clark and the Mahaiwe, is free and open to the general public.
Cassin’s talk focuses on the depth and variety of the Clark’s collection, drawing connections between Homer’s early illustrative work and his later paintings. Cassin plans to discuss the full range of Homer’s artistic production, not only from a technical point of view, but also from a historical perspective.
The Mahaiwe is located at 14 Castle St., Great Barrington. Info: clarkart.edu, 413-458-2303.
