Museum Reads – “Gods and Girls: Tales of Art, Seduction and Obsession”
March 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$5
A book group especially for art enthusiasts.
Welcome to Museum Reads, the Newport Art Museum’s Art-Themed book group for adults. We meet monthly, at the Museum and virtually, for discussion, and frequently are joined by the author.
This collection of short stories is based on the tales of women whose encounters with works of art forever change the course of their lives. Readers embark on adventures around the globe, to ancient far off places of mystical power that mesmerize their viewers. Immerse in the work of art, read on and see how each character is transformed by the encounter with a temple, a painting or a sculpture. A super model meets the Venus de Milo, a linguist is hypnotized by a Mayan pyramid, a conservator uncovers the mysteries of a great painting, which expose secrets about her own life. Many more masterpieces and the women they bewitch and bemuse are waiting as Gods and Girls envelopes the reader in tales where art, seduction and obsession appear in every guise.
