Mary Cassatt
Wednesday, 2/8/2017 - Sunday, 4/2/2017
Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury Street, Worcester, MA - Free with Museum admission
Mary Cassatt's 1901 pastel "Simone in a White Bonnet," on loan from a private collection, will be on view at the Worcester Art Museum as part of a small, focused installation. As this work reveals, the medium of pastel was exceptionally well suited to Cassatt's Impressionist predilections for indistinct outlines and luminous color. Paired with "Reine Lefebvre Holding a Nude Baby"-the Museum's celebrated Cassatt from the same period-this installation highlights the artist's mastery of different mediums, as she shifted between oil painting and pastel toward the end of her career.

Women Artists: Part 1 by Marylou Hannon of Art Matters
Friday, 3/31/2017 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Briarwood Continuing Care Retirement Community: Birches Auditorium, 65 Briarwood Circle, Worcester, MA - Free and Open to the Public
Marylou Hannon of Art Matters presents Women Artists, Part I. Women artists, capable of the art of creation as well as the creation of art, have historically proved threatening to the dominant male establishment. There are many examples of how she has flourished and failed, been celebrated or crushed, but in almost every instance, needing to be better than their male competitors to be taken seriously. Join us for a look and a discussion about the women who have defied convention to make art from the Renaissance through the 19th century.
