Gallery Talk tonight

In case you missed seeing it elsewhere, there's a wonderful gallery talk scheduled for 5:30 p.m. tonight at GMOA. Robert Randolf Coleman, of Notre Dame, and collector Giuliano Ceseri will speak about GMOA's exhibition "The Art of Disegno." Randy served as co-curator of the exhibition, which was last on display at the Snite Museum of Art on Notre Dame's campus, and co-wrote the accompanying hardcover exhibition catalogue. Ceseri owns many of the works in the exhibition (16th- to 18th-century Italian prints and drawings), which are on long-term loan to the museum. In addition to collecting works of this era and many others, he is also a self-taught expert on period frames, many of which appear on the works in the exhibition. The museum's galleries are not normally open to the public on Tuesdays, but tonight is an exception, and we hope you'll join us.
