All of us at JCSM are looking forward to the opening reception for Rembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough, and the Golden Age of Painting in Europe.

Based on R.S.V.P. response, we do anticipate that the 6 p.m. lecture will be at capacity. Please be sure to use all available seats, which will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

For those not attending the lecture, you are welcome to visit the galleries upon arrival. In addition to the “Golden Age,” JCSM is proud to present an exhibition by Auburn alumnus Billy Renkl and JCSM’s most requested artwork from the permanent collection, including recent acquisitions by the 1072 Society 2014.
