University College at Fairfield University offers "See The 'Masters' With the Experts" art lectures


Before you visit that upcoming art exhibit, consider learning a bit about it first. University College at Fairfield University will offer a series of preparatory lectures to enhance your artistic knowledge and increase the enjoyment you will experience when you do visit the exhibit.

The lectures, which take place on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., are held at Fairfield University.

The series kicks off on October 15 with a seminar on "Schoenberg, Kandinsky, and the Blue Rider." Philip Eliasoph, Ph.D., professor of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University, will deliver the lecture, which corresponds to an exhibit running October 24 through February 12 at The Jewish Museum.

On October 22, Gertrude Grace Sill, professor emeritus of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University, will prepare her students for "Copley to Cassatt: Masterworks from the Terra Museum of American Art," which runs through Dec. 7 at the New Britain Museum of American Art.

Gita Rajan, Ph.D., associate professor of English, will round out the series on October 29 with a lecture for "Traces of India: Photography, Architecture, and the Politics of Representation, 1850-1900," which runs from October 16 through January 11 at the Yale Center for British Art.

The cost of each lecture is $35, or $99 for the series. To register by phone, call (203) 254-44288. For more information, call (203) 254-4307 or visit University College at www.fairfield.edu.
