Curator’s Book Reveals New Winslow Homer Works
A free talk by Reilly Rhodes, author of “Winslow Homer from Poetry to Fiction- the Engraved Works,” takes place along with a book signing at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25 at the Laguna Art Museum, 307 Cliff Dr.
The art of Winslow Homer is illustrated with informative interpretation and accompanied by never before published or exhibited period photographs.
Rhodes is the director and chief curator of the initiative known as Contemporary and Modern Print Exhibitions, based in Laguna Niguel.
