Crown yourself

Crown Yourself: The Dolci Experience in Flowers and Art - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

The Nasher Museum and Sarah P. Duke Gardens present a special opportunity to expand our understanding of 17th-century Florence and the inspiration Florentines took from nature. The program begins at the Nasher Museum with a special tour of the exhilarating exhibition The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th Century Venice. Dolci is known for his luminous and meticulous renderings, reverence for detail, brilliant palette and jewel-like surfaces. After the tour, we will walk to Duke Gardens, where we will complete an arrangement of botanical materials to create our crowns (or wreaths, centerpieces). All materials and tools will be provided with guidance and assistance from Duke Gardens and Nasher staff. Please bring any personal embellishments you would like to include. Refreshments available during the workshop portion. We recommend that you park at Duke Gardens and walk over to meet the group at the Nasher Museum.
 
Gardens members $40; Nasher Museum members $40; General public $50; Duke students $10, includes entrance and ticket to the special tour of the Dolci exhibition and all materials for crowns. Registration required: Call 919-668-1707

Stacy Lynn Waddell

Contemporary Artist Series: Stacy Lynn Waddell - 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Durham artist Stacy Lynn Waddell will give a talk about how her work connects–and does not connect–with such Old Masters as Carlo Dolci. Her talk is part of the Contemporary Artist Series–three artists who share how their work connects with the special ticketed exhibition, The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence. Light and shadow, detail and abstraction, composition and tension, capturing a subject’s gaze—these issues tested old master painters like Carlo Dolci, who influenced many generations of artists. The artists in this series will talk about how they pull from a long tradition of portraiture, how they are inspired by and grapple with faith in their work and how their work connects, and does not connect, to a larger history. The talk is free and open to all.

The Nasher Museum is proud to present the first exhibition in the United States devoted to the luminous and meticulously rendered paintings of Italian artist Carlo Dolci (1616–1687). More information.

New! General admission is free all day Thursday, 10 AM to 9 PM, but tickets are required for the exhibition The Medici’s Painter.
