Members-Only Preview Reception - M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion

Sep 18

5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Escher Member Events

Join us as we celebrate the Opening of M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion.

M.C. Escher created intricate geometric drawings and etchings of spaces that can only exist on paper and in the viewer’s mind. His images continue to boggle the eye and the brain, captivating viewers more than 40 years after his death. In Escher’s world, stairways are built upside-down, water runs uphill and every object is reproduced with mathematical precision. This Escher retrospective is one of the largest and most comprehensive ever offered in the United States. Its exclusive New England showing at the Currier Museum of Art will contain his best-known works of art, early family portraits, original preparatory sketches he created and examples of lithographic stones and copperplates he used to print his later works.

5:30 - 7:30 p.m.: Enjoy the exhibition, refreshments and a cash bar.

6:15 p.m.: Remarks
