We are kicking off this season’s INSIDE AGNES series with performances from The Volunteer Committee of the Kingston Symphony Association Music Award winners: Sophia Battel, Alice Kim, Victoria Lui, Avery Marcella,  Felix Melanson, and Leonid Nediak. Discover Kingston’s youngest pianists and cellists!

Artists have drawn inspiration from the heavens for hundreds of years. Chief Curator/Curator of Canadian Historical Art Alicia Boutilier provides an inside look at sculpture in the new exhibition In the Present: The Zacks Gift of 1962 and in the Agnes collection and considers how the 1960s space race changed the way that artists viewed the cosmos, and even changed the materials and textures that they used.

Featuring Two Thirds Down and Jenn Nicoll

Two Thirds Down Under and Rembrandt

Based in Kingston Ontario, Two Thirds Down Under consists of two dinky-di Aussies and a retired globe trotter who has settled in Canada. The trio, two clarinets (and sometimes flute) and cello, play a smorgasbord of selections from Bach to Beatles, original compositions and arrangements for the group and beyond. They have been playing together now for over a year.

Agnes Collections Manager and Exhibition Coordinator Jennifer Nicoll will talk about the recent Agnes loan of Rembrandt’s Head of an Old Man in Cap to the Denver Art Museum for their exhibition, Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker.  She will describe the loan process in art museums and her courier trip to supervise the transport and delivery of the painting to Denver.
