Monet | Kelly Opens At The Clark
Amy Krzanik reports from Williamstown. A large crowd packed the atrium and gallery of the recently redesigned Clark Art Institute on Saturday night, November 22 for the unveiling of the new exhibit Monet | Kelly. The exhibition focuses on the role Claude Monet’s motifs and the sites that inspired his paintings (most notably Belle-Île and Giverny) have played in the work of artist Ellsworth Kelly. Kelly, who helped choose the pieces featured in the exhibit and still creates out of his studio over the border in Spencertown, NY, was on hand to chat with well-wishers. The exhibit runs through February 15, 2015. Above: The artist himself, Ellsworth Kelly, and yours truly.
