MANCHESTER>> Carol Berry will examine the many places that touched Van Gogh's life on Sunday, May 22 at 4 p.m. at the Equinox Village. The illustrated talk, "In the Footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh," is free and open to the public.
Join Berry for a journey through the places Vincent Van Gogh lived--from his birth town in The Netherlands to the cities where he studied to be an art dealer, to the Belgian mining district and on to Paris and the South of France. "On our way we will meet the folks Vincent painted, and see some of the sites that drew his attention. We will visit the Night Cafe in Arles, the monastery (asylum) in Saint Remy where he painted Starry Night and end our journey in the wheat fields surrounding Auvers-sur-Oise," said Berry.
Carol Berry has traveled throughout Europe retracing Vincent Van Gogh's life, visiting the towns and villages in The Netherlands, Belgium, and France, where Vincent lived and worked. These experiences have offered her an even richer appreciation of his life.
An artist and a retired art educator with a Masters in Art Education, Berry is the author of "Vincent Van Gogh: His Spiritual Vision in Life and Art" (2015). She has spent more than 20 years studying Van Gogh's paintings and getting to know him through his letters and papers and the writings of his peers.
This free talk is sponsored by Equinox Village and hosted by Manchester Community Library.
Equinox Village is located at 49 Maple Street. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Cindy Waters at the library, 802-362-2607.
