Georgia companies that would like to host a private event at the Oglethorpe Museum of Art during the exhibition “Masterpieces from European Artist Colonies, 1830-1930,” should contact museum director Lloyd Nick.

The exhibition featuring 19 artist colonies in Europe is to be held Feb. 6-May 22 and is to include paintings by Corot, Klee, Pissaro, Ancher and Daubigny.

“This is an incredible opportunity for the Atlanta community to see the work of those who initiated significant art movements such as impressionism, realism, symbolism, surrealism and expressionism,” Mr. Nick told GlobalAtlanta.

“Not only will guests view very famous paintings, we will also host a series of lectures by American and European art specialists and cultural philosophers. People literally are coming from all over the world to support this exhibit.”

The exhibition will be held in the museum’s two galleries, which are located on the third floor of Oglethorpe University’s Lowry Hall and Philip Weltner Library.

Corporate sponsors of the exhibition at the $5,000 level will be able to hold a private event at the museum including a lecture given by Mr. Nick at the event and at their companies.
