Northern European Art Exhibit at Vassar College
By Amanda Guido
You do not need to look very far to find historical and original art pieces in Dutchess County. Look no further than Vassar College’s Francis Lehman Loeb Art Center located conveniently on Vassar College’s campus in the town of Poughkeepsie. Featured works include those by Dürer, Cranach, Joos van Cleve, Lucas van Leyden, Rembrandt, and Jan Lievens.
Come check out the latest Master Class exhibit featuring Northern European art from 1500 to 1700. This exhibit is running from April 27, 2018 through September 2, 2018. This art museum is open to the public every day, except for Monday. The hours are 10:00am to 5:00pm, with the exception of Thursday being open until 9:00pm and Sunday closing at 1:00pm. There are events every Thursday night during the extended hours.
Some upcoming events include a Curator’s Gallery Talk on the Master Class on Friday, July 13th at 12:00pm. There is another Curator’s Gallery Talk on Portrayals of and by African Americans on Wednesday, August 1st at 12:00pm.
While you are visiting, be sure to stop and relax in the sculpture garden. This is a relaxing space complete with benches and tables for bringing a lunch to. The foliage compliments the unique sculptures in this space. The entire garden flows together very nicely. The entire campus is out of a storybook, but this garden is truly something special.
