French Impressionism talk at the library this Sunday

Jun 20 2017 | 04:10 AM

— Art historian Beth Gersh-Neši will talk about French Impressionism at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 25, in the Pike County Public Library's community room, 119 East Harford St., Milford.
The event is free and open to the public.
Gersh-Neši teaches at Purchase College and specializes in modern art. She is the director of the New York Arts Exchange, where she leads art tours, delivers lectures, curates exhibitions and writes catalog essays. Her lecture will feature works by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot.
Local community member Mikki Weiss is funding the event to honor the memory of Gersh-Neši’s parents, Mildred and David Gersh, avid patrons of the arts. Weiss brought the idea to the library after Gersh-Neši's mother, Mildred, died last August. David Gersh died on June 20, 2012. Weiss and Mildred Gersh produced innovative educational experiences for the New York Public School system in the Bronx. They were creative colleagues and very close friends.
