Art and Nature - Conservation Circle
Join Elizabeth Farnsworth and Debbi Edelstein for a special viewing of "Van Gogh and Nature" currently on exhibit at the Clark Art Institute. The artist's developing relationship with his natural surroundings, from his early studies to his later landscapes, is a reflection of both his travels throughout Europe and his growing knowledge of illustrated natural history. Invitations will be sent this week.
