ARTEK Presents Artemisia: Light and Shadow


Riverdale, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent welcomes ARTEK—New York City’s premier early music ensemble—for their presentation of an innovative new theatrical show celebrating the life and art of 17th-century painter Artemisia Gentileschi on April 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the President’s Reception Room.

Conceived as a one-woman show, Artemisia: Light and Shadow stars Sarah Chalfy as Artemisia, who will sing music by Barbara Strozzi and Francesco Cavalli.

The show’s music director, Gwendolyn Toth, is also ARTEK’s director, an adjunct faculty member at the College, and the Director of the Mount Saint Vincent Choir.

The event, sponsored by the Mount’s Division of Communication, Art, and Media, is free and open to the public.
