Titans of the Renaissance

1:00-3:00 pm

The High Renaissance was a brief tranquil 30-year period at the end of the 1400s and start of the 1500s when the technical mastery to produce illusionistic art and the desire to make classically-inspired art came together in the hands of profound thinkers. Join Elderwise as Wendy Evans presents a rich variety of images by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael, while exploring their personal stories and the times in which they lived, as well as their contributions to art. Celebrities courted by princes and popes, these men produced some of the most influential works of western art.

$45 for members/$30 for non-members for the series.
Zoom link will be sent to registrants one day before the class.

The State Hermitage Museum, Russia

7:30-8:30 pm

The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia is a spectacular art museum. Founded by Catherine the Great, it now has over 3 million works of art and artefacts. Its huge collection of paintings is especially impressive. It was the 6th most visited art museum in 2021. Its collections occupy six historic buildings overlooking the Neva River. We'll look at a range of great and interesting art from ancient times to the mid-20th century.

Held in the Farmington Public Library. The Farmington Art Foundation has a meeting from 6:16-7:15 pm. Visitors are welcome to attend Wendy's talk.

Life is the leaves which shape and nourish a plant, but art is the flower which embodies its meaning.
