New Hampshire has attracted and inspired artists since the colonial era. What is distinctive about the art made here? This program will consider works by itinerant and folk painters, landscape artists drawn to the state's scenic vistas, and modern artists that adopted bold styles to depict everyday life in the Granite State. Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Childe Hassam, and Maxfield Parrish are some of the artists art historian and educator Jane Oneail will explore.
The program will be recorded.
Sponsored by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library, this series is dedicated in memory of Kathy Hess, retired educator, longtime Friends' board member, and tireless book sale volunteer, library advocate and art enthusiast.
