Fenimore Art Museum outside of Cooperstown will present a series of virtual guided tours of its two major fall exhibits, “Albrecht Dürer: Master Prints” and “Pete Souza: Two Presidents, One Photographer.”
The 30-minute programs, offered online via Zoom, will feature a walking video tour of each exhibit with an in-depth discussion on the artists and artworks, followed by a live Q&A session with a museum professional.
“Albrecht Dürer: Master Prints” features more than 30 woodblock prints and engravings by (or after) the German Renaissance master printmaker Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528). The artist was an “innovator who revolutionized the medium of printmaking in the late 15th century,” presenters said in a media release.
Assistant Curator of American Art Ann Cannon will lead a virtual video tour of the exhibit followed by a live question-and-answer session at 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 29 and Oct. 6, and Saturday, Oct. 3.
“Pete Souza: Two Presidents, One Photographer” showcases the work of Souza, official White House photographer for Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama.
Photographer and Manager of Arts Education Kevin Gray will lead a virtual video tour of the exhibit, followed by a live question-and answer session at 2 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 24 and Oct. 1, and and Sunday, Oct. 4.
