This month, come along to learn about "The Old Masters at the 'New' Norton" a terrific essay by Everl Adair, Director of Research and Rare Collections. As we continue to reinvigorate our displays, you'll see paintings and sculptures in a new light. The magnificent special exhibit, "'Where Will You Travel Next?': Destinations in Paintings" continues through 27 October. During our "First Saturday Tour" on 7 September, you'll learn about painting techniques. Outside, the last of summer and the first of fall blooms color the canvas of our grounds and botanical gardens. So enjoy the newsletter, and come see what's new!
This month you'll go on a journey through classical art, where dates of the works include the letters B.C. and A.D. That journey provides up-close looks and background information about our newest acquisitions that rank among the oldest works in our collection. You'll still be able to see the fabulous work in our special exhibit from the Kasten Collection, hear about the trials of military wives decades ago, and learn how to tend your August garden and prepare it for cooler days ahead. Enjoy our botanical gardens this month, then step inside for a cool stroll through centuries of artistic creation.
Take a tour of the museum with us this month either in person or through our current newsletter. We re-visit the Kasten Collection, with works by artists who were inspired by their surroundings in the east end of Long Island. You'll see our newest acquisitions of classical works, take a walk through American history, and sniff gardenias in our garden.
