In conjunction with two current exhibitions of work by masters of European modernism, Nassau County Museum of Art presents TV personality and arts advocate Shirley Romaine on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 3 p.m. in Wunderbar! Star Painters: An Insider’s View.
Romaine will discus Serge Sabarsky, the first director of Nassau County Museum of Art when it was privatized in 1989.
Sabarsky, an expert in the German and Austrian Expressionist Art movements, brought world-class exhibitions to the newly private museum that showcased works by important artists of those modernist schools, including Klimt, Shiele, Kandinsky, Klee, Dix and many others.
Television interviews Romaine conducted with Sabarsky will be the basis of her talk.
Admission is $15 (members, $5) and includes museum admission. Register at nassaumuseum.org/events.
Nassau County Museum of Art is located at One Museum Drive in Roslyn Harbor, just off Northern Boulevard, Route 25A, two traffic lights west of Glen Cove Road.
