Matisse's Dancers Exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art

We could meet in Westminster and carpool to the Museum. We can work out details later depending on the amount of interest.
Matisse's Dancers
November 14, 2012 - February 24, 2013
Free exhibition

This intimate exhibition of more than 30 dance-themed prints, drawings, and sculptures by the great French artist Henri Matisse spans three decades of the artist’s career—from sculptures created in[masked] to delicate drawings of dancers sketched in 1949

The centerpiece of the exhibition is a rarely shown series of 11 transfer lithographs of a dancer/acrobat moving through various positions that evolve into an abstraction of reality, movement, and shape. These prints, drawn as lithographs in[masked], but published after Matisse’s death, are among the most eloquent examples of the artist’s way of seeing.

The exhibition also includes an earlier series of prints of dancers by Matisse from[masked], two of his later series of drawings from 1949, and two sculptures by artists who were equally fascinated with dancers, Auguste Rodin and Edgar Degas.

    Julie and Judy B, I REALLY wish I could attend this, but the week has not panned out as I had hoped such that I can go. Matisse is a great artist. And, after reading "The Art Forger" in November (with Degas as a main character), I know I would have enjoyed seeing the exhibition. But,...just too many tasks hitting me at the end of the week. I'll be thinking of you, though, and hoping there might be some photos posted, assuming the museum allows the taking of photos. Hey, at least take a picture of you enjoying your meal afterwards. :) Have fun!!!

      Thanks, Craig, we will. Let's try to do something up your way soon. Hashawha or Gettysburg or Cordorus? Take care...

    Judy, since it is just you, my friend and I, let me pick you up at about 12:30

      Ok...sounds good. And I know your friend would be more comfortable with you driving in your car. But next time we go downtown, it will be my turn to drive. See you at 12:30!

    Look for me outside the parking garage. I think there is a bench just before you walk into Locust Lane. Will see me there. My phone is[masked]

    At this point, I'll have to be a "maybe," but it does sound very interesting.

    Lets meet in Westminster in the public parking lot on Rt 27 (Railroad Ave) between Main and Distillery. Look for my grey Prius. From there we will carpool to Baltimore. I will drive and Judy has also offered if needed. If we are all in agreement about an early dinner, I would highly recommend Joe Squared- a lovely little bar/restaurant on North Ave. They specialize in really good pizza and they have the best risotto I have ever had.

      That sounds perfect! Clarification: we leave the public parking lot at 12:30? I'm good for dinner at Joe Squared.

      Sounds great- I will be at the parking lot at 12:30. I, too, am good for dinner.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
