Williamstown, MA— Tuxedos take a back seat to lobster bibs as the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute kicks off summer with a clambake on Saturday, June 8, at 6:30 pm. The gala celebrates the opening of the exhibitions “Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History” and “George Inness: Gifts From Frank and Katherine Martucci.” Guests will enjoy cocktails, a raw bar, and other appetizers, followed by a sumptuous buffet dinner of lobster, clams, barbecued chicken, and many side dishes. Live entertainment includes pianist Bob Werbel, performance artists The Silver Swimmers, and the band The Wandering Rocks, who will sing sea shanties. Galleries will be open until the close of the event, allowing partygoers to view the Homer and Inness exhibitions a day before they open to the public. Tickets are $125 and may be reserved by visiting or by calling (413) 458-0524.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from September through June, 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is $15, June 1 through October 31; free, November through May; and free year round for Clark members, children 18 and younger, and students with valid ID. For more information visit or call (413) 458-2303. The Clark’s library will be closed for renovation through September 3, 2013.
