‘Art in miniature’ lecture this Tuesday

The IYRS-MOY five-part Artists and Authors lecture series begins this Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m. with an evening with Lloyd McCaffery at the IYRS Restoration Hall at 449 Thames St. in Newport.

McCaffery, one of the world’s leading marine model artists, will talk about “Art in Miniature.” The lecture will focus on the art of model making, an endeavor that McCaffery says requires “a balance between the analytical approach of a technician and the intuitive feeling of an artist.”

All lectures take place at 7:30 p.m. at IYRS Restoration Hall on Tuesday evenings. Lectures are free to members of IYRS and the Museum of Yachting; $7 for nonmembers.
