Attention art lovers, the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary is opening two new exhibitions in February.

One exhibition focuses on 16 paintings by “Dutch and Flemish Old Masters,” according to a Muscarelle Museum of Art news release. The second exhibition focuses on works of art by “Women with Vision” from the museum’s permanent collection.

In the light of Caravaggio: Dutch and Flemish paintings from southeastern museums and Women with Vision: Masterworks from the permanent collection both open February 10 and close May 13.

“We are so happy to have the opportunity to show our diverse and growing collection of women artists, just before the official 100th anniversary celebration of the first female students admitted to the College [of William and Mary],” Muscarelle Museum of Art director Aaron De Groft said.

“In the light of Caravaggio” will highlight the “individualism, sensuality, dramatic shadows and resolute realism” of the artists’ work.

The exhibition is done in cooperation with six other museums, including the National Gallery of Art, North Carolina Museum of Art, Speed Art Museum, Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery, and the Chrysler Museum of Art.

While “Women with Vision” will show works from “cutting-edge” contemporaries such as Carole Feuerman, Kay Jackson and several others. The art shown is all Muscarelle-owned.

“The quality of the art in this exhibition is impressive and shows the growth of this important area of our collection,” De Groft said.

Admission is $10 for adults and children age 12 and older. Admission is free to members of the Muscarelle Museum of Art, college students and staff, and children younger than 12-years-old.
