ECU TRIP OFFERS TOUR OF IMPRESSIONIST PAINTINGS IN FORT WORTH

An opportunity to view a collection of 92 of the most celebrated works of the great Impressionist painters will be offered Nov. 1 [SATURDAY] by East Central University's Center of Continuing Education and Community Services.

Participants in a day-long trip to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, will tour "The Impressionists: Master Paintings from the Art Institute of Chicago" with works by the most beloved group of painters of all time.

The exhibition, which includes paintings made familiar to many because of their reproductions in textbooks and posters, features signature works by Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul C├ęzanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

These artists reinvented painting, taking color and brushwork into new realms of beauty and artistic adventure. They were painters of modern life who created a more complete and delightful picture of the world in which they lived than any artists before them or since.

ECU faculty member Michael Hughes will guide the tour. The cost is $75 and does not cover lunch. For more details, contact Mary Weddle at ECU at 580-559-5456.
