VIRTUAL GALLERY TALK: Social: From the Artist’s Studio to the Barbershop & Beach

July 14, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$8.00 – $10.00

with Jenny Parsons, Associate Curator

$10 (members $8)

Hear from Parsons about how the social aspects of artists’ studios and spaces served as training grounds and sites of creativity through examples by such artists as Robert Vonnoh, Charles Ethan Porter, and Childe Hassam. This talk will also consider how audiences can use historic and contemporary depictions to reflect on our recent experiences with the pandemic, including gathering places pictured by Gifford Beal, Paul Cadmus, and Sophie Lvoff.

This program takes place virtually via GoTo Webinar. You will receive a confirmation email of your registration. The link to the virtual program will be sent via email closer to the event date.
