Fairfield University Art Museum Announces New Series, Art in Focus

Carlo Maratti, Bacchus and Ariadne, ca. 1680. Oil on canvas. 47 x 55 inches. On loan from a private collection.

The Fairfield University Art Museum announces a new monthly series of gallery conversations, Art in Focus, in the museum’s Bellarmine Hall Galleries on the campus of Fairfield University.

During each event in the series, one painting, print, or sculpture in the museum’s collection will take center stage for an hour’s worth of close looking and informal discussion, led by Curator of Education, Michelle DiMarzo, PhD.

On September 28, Art in Focus examined Carlo Maratta’s Bacchus and Ariadne (ca. 1680), on loan from a private collection. In the scene, drawn from Greco-Roman mythology, Maratta depicted the moment of encounter between Ariadne, a beautiful princess abandoned by her lover, and Bacchus, the god of wine, fertility, and madness.

Fall Art in Focus dates (all sessions meet at 11 a.m.):

October 26: After Raphael, Transfiguration, 19th century

November 16: Utagawa Hiroshige II, Soto Beach in Mutsu Province, 1859

December 14: Martin van Meytens II, Portrait of a Boy, ca. 1750

Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with a work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Seating is provided. All events in the series are free and open to the public. Reserve your seat at fuam.eventbrite.com.

 

The museum’s Bellarmine Hall Galleries are located on the lower level of Bellarmine Hall on the campus of Fairfield University, 200 Barlow Road, Fairfield, Connecticut. It is open to the public Tuesday through Friday, 11-4 p.m., when classes are in session. Admission is free. The Fairfield University Museum of Art is handicap-accessible.
