Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry
Sunday December 3, 2017

This landmark exhibition examines the artistic exchanges among Johannes Vermeer and his contemporaries from 1650 to 1675, when they reached the height of their technical ability and mastery of depictions of domestic life. The exhibition brings together some 65 works by Vermeer and his fellow painters of the Dutch Golden Age, including Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu, Frans van Mieris, Caspar Netscher, and Jan Steen.  Juxtaposing paintings related by theme, composition, and technique, the exhibition explores how these artists inspired, rivaled, surpassed, and pushed each other to greater artistic achievement.  

Reservations are due by November 3, 2017.  Download a printable reservation form here.
 

 

 

You are invited to “A Dickens Holiday Soiree”, hosted by Dr. Mary Simmonds and her husband Dick Stewart, on Saturday, December 9 (5 to 8 pm), at their home at 1811 Warren St., New Cumberland.

The Soiree’s Dickens ambiance will be enhanced by Dr. Simmonds’ collection of “A Christmas Carol” themed decorations, including the Byer’s Collection of Carolers of the story’s major characters, Dickens Village ceramic houses, as well as three-foot-tall dolls of Scrooge, Marley, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and Tiny Tim. To add to the enjoyment, there will be appearances throughout the evening of the four ghosts, and a themed menu.

Dress is Victorian costume, or holiday attire. Join Scrooge to “keep Christmas well if any man possessed the knowledge”!
