On Friday, November 3, 2017, at 1:00 p.m., in the Atrium of the Performing Arts Center at SCCC, there will be a presentation titled “Insight Into Art: Impressionism.” Join Professor Michael Hughes to learn about the culture, style, painters, and major works of the Impressionist movement. Explore the lives and paintings of Manet, Sisley, Pissarro, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cassatt, and Morisot. Let this presentation expand your knowledge and appreciation of this beloved art style and find out why Claude Monet said, “Impressionism is only direct sensation.”

Find out why October is a particularly dangerous month for east coast hurricanes, and March has such wild weather swings throughout history.
