THE WOODLANDS, TX - Kicking off the spring session of Lyceum events at Lone Star College-Montgomery is Dr. Dena Woodall, curator with The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, discussing the works of artist Jacques Callot on Thursday, February 7, from 12-1 p.m., in the Recital Hall, located in the college's Music Hall (Building H.)

The presentation is free to the public. Refreshments will be provided, and a meet-and-greet reception will start at 11:30 a.m. in the same location. Woodall is assistant curator of prints and drawings at the museum. She holds a doctorate degree in art history with a specialization in Renaissance and Baroque art from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.

Baroque printmaker Callot left his mark in this world with more than 1,400 detailed etchings chronicling life in the early 1600s. Some of his most famous pieces include two series of prints on ""The Miseries and Misfortunes of War."" Woodall will discuss these works among the many others that showcase Callot's sophisticated etching techniques.

The Lyceum Speaker Series at LSC-Montgomery, located in the village of College Park, provides a variety of free lectures throughout the fall and spring semesters that are based on sociological, historical, economical, political, psychological, and spiritual views. All students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members, are invited to attend any Lyceum event throughout the year.
