Learn something new next week at Waterstone at Wellesley. We’re hosting presentations on Post-Impressionist artwork, Boston and climate change starting on Monday with a visit from Art Matters founder Jane Blair.
Blair will discuss Post-Impressionism, an art period that occurred approximately between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The period can be characterized by the works of artists like Paul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin. Blair, an art educator for approximately 20 years, has hosted her Art Matters lectures for nearly 14 years.
Then on Tuesday, the author Anthony Sammarco is visiting to discuss his book, “Lost Boston,” described as “a nostalgic journey back in time to visit some of the disappeared buildings and places in all their grandeur, before the wrecking ball and decline set in.” The book chronicles 68 different losses, including Franklin Place, Boston City Hall, Boylston Market, Haymarket Square and the Boston Public Library. A lover of Boston, Sammarco has authored 60 books on his native city.
We’re hosting another educational presentation on Thursday, when Quinton Prideaux is visiting to discuss climate change. Prideaux, who lives in Boston, is part of The Climate Reality Project and often gives presentations on the impacts and causes of climate change.
Next week, we’re also hosting two musical performances: piano with Archie Richards on Sunday and piano with Ethan Stone on Wednesday. Find details of each event, in order of the date, below:
