If you’ve had just about enough of this unrelenting winter weather but a trip to the Caribbean isn’t in the cards, here’s another option: head for the Dayton Art Institute’s newest exhibit.
Many of the 100 works of art that go on display next weekend will transport you to a summer paradise with titles like “Summer Breezes,” “Beach at East Hampton” and “After an April Shower.” The collection is filled with lovely seascapes, blooming gardens and scenic harbors as well as beautiful portraits and still life paintings.
This new show, “American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artists’ Colony,” opens Saturday, March 7, and will run through May 31. It comes from the Reading Public Museum in Pennsylvania. Impressionist paintings — filled with soft colors, beautiful light and idyllic scenes — are always a hit with museum visitors.
“Impressionism is really pleasing to the eye,” says the DAI’s curator of collections and exhibitions Aimee
