Spend the morning at the Fenimore Museum where you can enjoy two special exhibits -- John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Praise of Women and Magnum Photographers.

In Our Time: The World as Seen by Magnum Photographers -- Celebrating the first 50 years of Magnum Photos, the world's most renowned photographer-owned photographic agency, this exhibit represents 60 photographers. From images by George Rodger, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and David Seymour to contemporary photographers, including Sebastio Salgado, Chris Steele--kins, and James Nachtwey, these 150 images have helped to create a vivid record of momentous events throughout the world.

The portrait exhibition explores Sargent’s range of styles and depth of characterization in his portraits of society women, as well as his fascination with exotic working-class women of Venice and Capri. The paintings and drawings provide an intimate glimpse into the lives of these women of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

But, if opera and art aren't your cup of tea, let us know, because --
