Tickets are sold out for the Rembrandt Members-Only Lecture and Reception.
Due to limited seating and high demand, online ticket sales have closed. Tickets may be available at the Jepson Center front desk starting at 5pm.
We strongly recommend all pre-registered members be in their seats by 5:45pm. Waitlisted seating may be available to unregistered members on a first come, first served basis. We suggest arriving early to secure a seat. Once the auditorium reaches capacity, the doors will be closed and no additional entrances will be admitted to the lecture. However, the museum galleries will remain open for viewing and members are welcome to join us for the reception.
To open the Rembrandt exhibition, Telfair presents a lecture by noted scholar Dr. Shelley Perlove. Dr. Perlove is Professor Emerita of Art History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where she has taught since 1982. She has devoted more than 30 years to the research, publication, and teaching of Renaissance and Baroque art in Italy, Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
She has authored seven books and exhibition catalogues on various 16th and 17th century artists including Piranesi, Dürer, Bernini, Guercino, and Rembrandt, and recently published an essay in the exhibition catalogue for “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus” at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Her books include Bernini and the Idealization of Death published by Penn State Press, and the award-winning Rembrandt’s Faith: Church and Temple in the Dutch Golden Age, co-authored with Larry Silver, published by Penn State Press in 2009.
A reception and gallery viewing will follow the lecture.
