Friday 6/18, 10:30-11:30 am. Creating the American West in Art. The Frist Museum (Nashville, TN) has a beautiful exhibit which we will learn about on this special Zoom tour. Driven by U.S Government policy and economic opportunity, the American Westward expansion took place in the 18th and 19th Centuries. Artists, mostly Euro-American men, ventured westward to capture the “new frontier”. Their paintings were inspired images of the Wild West and daring, adventurous men as well as an often romanticized or idealized images of the indigenous people who inhabited these lands for many hundreds of years. The artists who were often adventurers or artist/explorers themselves helped visually reinforce the Doctrine of Manifest Destiny- an American frontier ripe for the taking-- the divine justification for the white man’s domination of the whole of America, a philosophy firmly established in the mid-1800’s.
The current show at the Frist Museum of Art, Creating the American West in Art consists of some 80 paintings and bronze sculptures. They are from the Petrie Institute of Western American Art – founded in 2001 and a major part of the Denver Art Museum’s western art collection. The works of art date from 1822 to 1946. Our virtual tour will take us through this historical period touching on several styles and focusing on how the image of the west changed as American identity changed.

Friday 7/23, 10:30-11:30 am. American Impressionism. The Smithsonian American Art Museum has one of the finest and largest collections from the last quarter of the nineteenth century, including American Impressionists. A generation of artists studied abroad and absorbed ideas that were revolutionizing painting in France. On this special docent tour, you will see the paintings of Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Frank Weston Benson, and John Henry Twachtman. Mary Cassatt lived much of her adult life in France where she befriended Degas and exhibited with the French Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women. Frederick Childe Hassam was noted for his urban and coastal scenes. Along with Cassatt and John Henry Twachtman, Hassam was instrumental in promulgating Impressionism to American collectors, dealers, and museums. He produced over 3,000 paintings, oils, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs over the course of his career.

Tuesday, 8/17 2:00-3:30pm. Memory Loss and Communication. Village volunteers and members are invited to register for a free training program led by the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter. The program will cover both communication and behavior difficulties experienced by those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia and how their caregivers and families can manage these situations more effectively.
Do you want to learn more about how to be comfortable and successful communicating with people with neuro-cognitive difficulties? How to approach, reach them, and find a better way to lessen frustrations? This program will give you real-life tools you can use as you navigate the difficulties of being a care partner to a family member or to individuals you interact with as a volunteer.
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways people living with dementia communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common triggers, and learn strategies to help manage some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
This event is coordinated by Bethesda Metro Area Village.
