Culturally Curious Art Program
“Parisian Cafes and Impressionist Paintings” Hosted by the Friends of the Goodnow Library
Please join the Friends of the Goodnow Library for a delightful Sunday Afternoon art program featuring Jane Oneail of Culturally Curious. This virtual program will be presented on Sunday, January 24, 2021, at 3 PM. Held on Zoom the program will explore images by Monet, Renoir, Degas, and others and how the hub of activity in Parisian cafes inspired these artists.
According to Culturally Curious, “Arts experiences correlate to good health, satisfaction with life, low anxiety, and low depression in both men and women. Additionally, the viewing of artwork, particularly work that one finds beautiful, causes a person to experience joys similar to falling in love. Talking about art is also a workout for the brain and nourishment for the soul” During these trying times, the Friends of the Goodnow Library invite you to experience the many benefits of an art experience by joining us for our new series of art programs. Other programs will be presented in February, March, and April.
Jane Oneail, the presenter, is the founder and president of Culturally Curious. She was leading art tours at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, when she first began to appreciate the special magic that happens when people look at art together and share their genuine reactions and questions. Jane has a master’s degree in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from the Harvard Unversity Graduate School of Education. She is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and the Currier Museum of Art. She has taught Art History at the college level for more than a decade.
Registration for the program is required. To register, please go to the Goodnow Library website and sign up on the Calendar page. A few days before the program, look for a Zoom invitation.
