Wilton Reads: New England Coastal Art – From Harbor to High Seas
April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
The coast of New England is a varied and ever-changing landscape that has been both muse and home for artists. This ArtScapades lecture at Wilton Library will look at how artists portrayed the coastline of New England in their works, an area which has been a leading center for artists since the 18th century. This talk will look at the art of Winslow Homer, John Henry Twachtman, Childe Hassam, John Sloan, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, and more.
Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman of ArtScapades began teaching art appreciation in 1998. They have presented at libraries, art centers, and museums in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Florida.
