Arts & Entertainment

ART MATTERS: Marc Chagall Tues January 7, 1 PM Known as the “Poet”, he was one of the most versatile artists of the 20th Century. He merged the traditional images of his native Russian, Jewish culture with the modern styles of Cubism, and Fauvism. His paintings portray stories and fables, ideals of freedom, dreams of love, nightmares of war, passionate emotions and soul-refreshing humor. He never finished a canvas until something in it “surprised” himself. Join us for a retrospective look at his work, his life, and his unique perspective of the world
