Mann Art Gallery curator hopes to foster curiosity at Impressionist art talk

Mann Art Gallery director and curator Jesse Campbell is giving a presentation on French Impressionist painting at John M. Cuelenaere Public Library On Tuesday, Nov. 1 as part of the Explore Lifelong Learning speaking series.

“It’s a topic that I find really interesting. Impressionism continues to be such a popular style that it persists on today,” she said.

“Everyone is familiar with the name Monet or Renoir or Degas so I thought that this would be an interesting topic to explore further and to provide people with some understanding of why it is different within the very large history of art.”

This is Campbell’s second Lifelong Learning talk. During last February’s Winter Festival Art Show she discussed the importance of public art galleries in cities and led a tour through the exhibition.
