Missing the Addison?

We know that our friends out there are driving past the Addison construction site on Main Street in Andover and wishing, “if only there were a way we could still see some great works of art before Addison reopens in 2010!”

We are happy to say that we have devised a few opportunities to make your wish a reality.

All are welcome to join us in temporary quarters next Wednesday from 11– 12, for a special opportunity to revisit some of the Addison’s treasures pulled from the vaults.

Brian T. Allen, the Addison Gallery's Mary Stripp & R. Crosby Kemper Director, will be hosting:

Winslow Homer, Dog on a Log, 1889, watercolor and graphite on wove paper, bequest of Candace C. Stimson, Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, MACLOSE ENCOUNTERS
The Watercolors of Winslow Homer


Wednesday, January 14, 2009
11:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.
School Room (third floor), Abbot Hall
Abbot Campus
School Street, Andover, MA

Brian’s talk is the first of a three-part series of intimate visits with treasures from the collection hosted by the Addison’s curators. The next two parts will be:

Thursday, February 19th with Susan Faxon
Thursday, March 19th with Allison Kemmerer

If you are not familiar with the Phillips Academy campus and would like directions to Abbot Hall, please call 978-749-4023.

Looking forward to visiting with you!

Many thanks to the Addison Gallery for a wonderful presentation yesterday. It was worth braving the cold for Brian Allen's informative talk and an intimate visit with some of the Addison's treasures. I'm looking forward to February's event!
