Darrel’s Cummer Outing

Darrel Lectures at the Cummer

 

 

Darrel Explains one of his Favorite Paintings

Not being a very “artie” person, I know very little about the fine art paintings at the Cummer Gallery. In order to try and slightly remedy this situation, I went to Darrel’s tour and lecture of exhibits at the Cummer on the July outing. I was amazed at what I didn’t know. Darrel and Diane Wise made the paintings come to life, bringing in the story of the painter, the period in which it was painted and a description of the contents. Darrel and Diane split up the descriptions, and Dick Cardell had an occasional comment to make.This is clearly a whole new world and JCC is privileged to have Darrel and Diane around to try and teach us something.

There was a good crowd, the Cummer is a magnificent place and the cafe was a busy place, with 16 staying for dinner.. I didn’t stay for dinner but Darrel says the “dishes they served were attractive and tasty if a bit limited and designed for sharing” I think that for a museum cafe, that is a fairly good report. For more pictures check out this Google Photo Gallery. I’ll add more pictures if folks will send them to me, or you can also pictures ┬áput them in the outings gallery.
