Print Story | Email Story
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Judith Meighan, associate professor in the history of art at Syracuse University, will present the lecture "Mediterranean Light: The Artistic Imagination of Italy," at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Sunday, March 14, at 3 p.m.

The lecture will focus on how Italian artists of the late 1800s, like Italian citizens, struggled to build on the strengths of the past while defining themselves in entirely new ways. Meighan will discuss this investigation of light, art and artists in Italy during this time period.

Currently on view at the Clark, the exhibition "Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris" illuminates the Italian artist's early career when he lived in Paris and painted the city's bustling streets, cafes and concert halls, as well as charming scenes of its sunny suburban landscapes, while developing his unique style. Through approximately 70 oil paintings and drawings, the exhibition presents an innovative look at Boldini's Paris. The exhibition is on view through April 25.

The Clark is located at 225 South St. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10 to 5 (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission is $15 from June 1 through October 31. Admission is free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit

Williams Women's Tennis Closes With Win

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The Williams College women's tennis team played its last match of the season this weekend, competing against Middlebury for the second weekend in a row. Though Williams experienced a loss last weekend, it got revenge by pulling out a close 5-4 win with more than half of the singles matches going into third set tiebreakers.
Williams had a strong start in doubles, winning both matches. Number one doubles Zoë Bennett and Jenny Tian won at 8-4, a similar score as last weekend. At number two doubles was Julia Pham and Erica Ekstrand, who reversed the score on their Middlebury opponents from last weekend to win the match, 8-6.
This sent Williams into singles with lots of momentum and positive energy. Ekstrand pulled out a quick win on court one, while Tian lost a tough match to her opponent on court number two. Meanwhile, courts three, four, and five were in battles, each going to a third set tiebreaker. Bennett and Pham finished around the same time, with Pham winning her tiebreaker, 10-8, and Bennett falling at the same score. Maya Jamroz was the last court on at number five. With all eyes on her, she won the third set tiebreaker, 10-7, to clinch the match for Williams.
