Joslyn Art Museum opens its summer exhibition this week

Omaha, NE – Joslyn Art Museum's Executive Director Jack Becker says the exhibition is comprised of 38 paintings that range from the mid-19th to early 20th century. He says works by French artists Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley will hang alongside pieces from American painters John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt.

Becker says people respond to Impressionism, "because it's so immediate. There's a great sense of color and light."

In July, two of the Joslyn's Late til 8 evenings will focus on French culture and Impressionism: Bon Soir: An Evening of French Wine, Dance & Design and An Evening of Impressionist High Notes. For more details, the number is 342-3300.

Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism continues at the Joslyn through September 12th.
