Vistas del Sur: 
Traveler Artists’ Landscapes of Latin America from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection is currently on exhibition at The New Britain Museum of American Art. Vistas del Sur features more than 150 rarely seen paintings, photographs, works on paper, and books dating from 1638 to 1887, that trace the evolution of Latin American landscapes by artists from Europe and the Americas. The museum will stay open after hours for a private tour of the exhibition. 

Eva Grudin taught in the art dept. at Williams for over forty years. She retired in 2014, and, changed course, taking up fiction writing. Her debut novel, Save the Last Dance, is about two teenage sweethearts who reunite after 50 years apart. It is co-authored with Eric Joseph, who will also be at the reception. This book is a work of fiction, an epistolary novel, all in email and texts, among 6 people caught up in tumult of this reunion. Sweet reminiscences and flights of fancy give way to the distress the couple's reconnection causes others.

Eric Joseph lives in Chicago and is a consultant in public health. Working at various hospitals and clinics across the country, he has concentrated his service on facilities overseen by the Indian Health Service.
