Casanova: The Seduction of Europe explores the 18th century across Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (1725--1798). Renowned in modern times for his amorous pursuits, Casanova lived not only in Italy, but in France and England, and his travels took him to the Ottoman Empire and to meet Catherine the Great in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
A visual art presentation of Paintings, sculpture, works on paper, furnishings, porcelains, silver and period costume will bring the world of Casanova's 18th century to life. The exhibition will be shown at the Kimbell Art Museum in TX from August 27 through December 31, 2017 before traveling to the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2018.

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION with Carolyn Carpentiere
7:30 PM

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2017 ~ Take an hour - just for you:

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.
