Early American Portraiture: From Folk Art to Fine Art
Wednesday July 24 from 6:30 to 8:00 in the Meeting Room.
ArtScapades will give background on what was happening at the time in European portraiture, information on the rise of the middle class in America, and the importance of art to document history before the invention of photography; detailing the lives and works of well-known fine artists John Singleton Copley and Gilbert Stuart. Lesser known but also very important to the development of portraiture in America, ArtScapades will focus on two Early American Folk Artists, Ammi Phillips and Erastus Salisbury Field. Wine and cheese. Register, please.
