About

This is not an "official" event at this point, as I am not sure whether I will attend and guarantee company. I've posted it in case members have an interest, with the idea that group members who know each other may contact each other (via the Meetup.com email feature or phone) and self-organize. People interested can also try posting comments (under this event) to try to find company. Or, you might just show up alone or with friends and enjoy the event, and perhaps bump into others you know. CANALETTO AND THE ART OF VENICE 85 mins. Directed by David Bickerstaff NR Sat, 5/25 12:30 pm Ticket prices are $20 for general admission, $16 for Members, and $9 for students (student tickets available only at the box office, not online). CANALETTO AND THE ART OF VENICE is an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice’s famous view-painter. No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences - Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain. Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views - from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him. -------- Event Link: https://amherstcinema.org/films-and-events/canaletto-and-art-venice
