Award-Winning Artist Alfred Leslie to Speak October 10


Alfred Leslie's Holyoke Range, near Oxbow, Easthampton, Massachusetts (1983)

Should you happen to visit Vienna's Museum Moderner Kunst, be prepared for a strangely familiar sight. The museum is home to the monumental canvas View of the Connecticut River as Seen from Mount Holyoke by Alfred Leslie, one of the world's foremost contemporary realists. But don't call your travel agent just yet. Leslie's fascinating large-format study for the canvas, along with his luminous black-and-white watercolor of the site, are featured in Changing Prospects: The View from Mount Holyoke at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum through December 8. On Thursday, October 10, at 7 pm in Gamble Auditorium, Leslie will speak about his view of the mountain that has inspired scores of artists and writers over the course of two hundred years. The program is sponsored by the art museum and is part of the Weissman Center's fall series, Destinations: New Meanings of Travel. more>
