Exciting things are heading to the Pacific Northwest this fall, starting with the opening of Intimate Impressionism at the Seattle Art Museum on October 1. With all the hype and excitement surrounding this show, SAM has recently announced that tickets will go on sale starting Wednesday, July 15, providing visitors with plenty of time to prepare.
Seattle will be the last stop for this international exhibition of pieces originating from the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. The tour, made possible by the temporary closure of the East Wing of the National Gallery for major renovation, includes small, intimate pieces intended for domestic spaces. The exhibition will be on display at the Seattle Art Museum until January 10, 2016 and features the work of Monet, Renoir, Cézanne and Degas.
“This important exhibition is comprised of extraordinary paintings among the jewels of one of the finest collections of French Impressionism in the world,” says Kimerly Rorschach, Seattle Art Museum’s Illsley Ball Nordstrom Director and CEO. “We are pleased to host these national treasures and provide our audience with the opportunity to enjoy works by Impressionist masters that are rarely seen in Seattle.”
With such an amazing collection right at our doorstep, be sure not to miss out.
