One Hundred Years of Harmony: Paintings by Gari Melchers Opening Lecture by Joanna Catron 

When: Thu., Aug. 25, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: Free for members, $5 for non-members
Join Joanna Catron, Ph.D., Curator of the Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont in Fredericksburg, Virginia, for a special lecture on the life and work of the celebrated artist and beloved Telfair advisor Gari Melchers. Artist Gary Melchers played an invaluable role in shaping the collection Telfair Museums as fine arts advisor from 1906 to 1916. Melchers facilitated purchase of many of the best-known works in the permanent collection, yet Telfair did not acquire a single work from him until he stepped down from his official role in 1916.
