New England Impressions: Art and the Making of Regional Identity, 1885-1950

William Hosley, collector, photographer, preservationist

Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau

For several generations, aspiring New England artists used our history, landscape, environment, and traditional industries as subject matter and muse–drawing inspiration from their environment and helping to shape New England’s genres of daily life. What they shared was a reverence for place, past, and seasonality and ideas associated with New England’s epic heritage. Hosley tells the story of painters, printmakers and photographers who pictured New England. Take the opportunity before and after the talk to view an exhibit of the regional art pieces that have embellished the walls of the library, displayed in a new way!
