Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center Lecture
“Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History”

Thursday, July 11 at 7 pm

The Clark’s Michael Cassin, director of the Center for Education in the Visual Arts, discusses how Homer’s work encompasses a wide variety of themes and techniques.

For more information and directions, call 413 528 0100 or visit www.mahaiwe.org.

“The Call of the Once-Wild: Winslow Homer and the Adirondacks 1870–1910”
Sunday, July 21 at 3 pm

Scholar David Tatham, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Art and Music Histories of Syracuse University, will speak on Winslow Homer's four-decade association with the Adirondacks. The Adirondack region portrayed in Homer's works characterizes the development of both his highly original strengths as an artist and his shifting relationship to the natural world. This lecture examines Homer’s Adirondack works in the Clark collection as well as in other collections.

“Winslow Homer and the Poetics of Place”
Sunday, August 4 at 3 pm

Thomas Denenberg, director of the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont, illustrates Homer's role in the development of the summer community of Prout’s Neck, Maine and, as the painter achieved national prominence for his creative endeavors, demonstrates the myriad ways in which Prout’s Neck and the coast of Maine became a national landscape in the decades that bracketed the turn of the century. Homer's time at Prout’s Neck has long been recognized as a critical moment in the history of American art.

Albany Institute of History and Art Lecture
“The Wide Frontier: American Landscape Painting in the Nineteenth Century”

Thursday, August 22 at 5:30 pm

As more territories joined the United States during the nineteenth century, artists made images that celebrated the various types of landscape found in different parts of the country. This lecture by Michael Cassin, director of the Clark’s Center for Education in the Visual Arts, looks at the work of painters such as Winslow Homer, Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt and the Hudson River School—painters who recorded the splendors of the North American landscape. For more information and directions, call 518 463 4478 or visit www.albanyinstitute.org.

“North Atlantic Drift: Winslow Homer and French Painting”
Sunday, August 25 at 3 pm

Erica E. Hirshler, Croll Senior Curator of American Paintings for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, explores American artist Winslow Homer’s achievements in the context of late nineteenth-century America’s taste for French art and its simultaneous desire for a national style. Homer’s independence and self-imposed distance from leading art centers cause him to be perceived as a self reliant, rugged American who drew upon nature, free from outside influences. But Homer did not ignore the art world, instead taking lessons from it, particularly from the painters of the French Barbizon School.
