February 12, 2013 by  

The Heckscher Museum of Art will host a lecture and gallery talk this Friday evening. Hosted by Dan Christoffel, ‘An Artist’s Look at Lincoln’, is being presented in recognition of the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

Christoffel is an award-winning national and international artist. His work features more than 40 paintings and sketches of Lincoln.

This event is presented in conjunction with the museum’s exhibit ‘Across Time & Place: Treasures from the Permanent Collection’ currently on display through April 14. This exhibit features highlights from the museum’s permanent collection of artwork. Artwork is by European and American artists of the last two centuries and features architectural structures.

Admission to the exhibit for residents is $4 – $6. Children under age 10 are free, as are museum members. Nonresidents are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for students.

The museum is located at 2 Prime Avenue, Huntington, just minutes away from East Northport. To purchase tickets, or for more information, call (631) 351-3250.

Art museum gift stores are a great place to look for inexpensive reprints of famous works. A lot of art centers contact print companies, who can help them produce reprints of well-known works of art, which can then be bought as souvenirs.

The lecture on Lincoln will take place at 7:00 pm on February 15, 2013. Registration is advised for the event and admission includes light refreshments. Admission to the lecture for members is $10 and $15 for non-members.
