History Lecture: Painters of the Isles of Shoals


Join us on July 18th at 4pm EST as artist and Star Island workshop leader Christopher Volpe will discuss the history of painting at the Isles of Shoals. Many are familiar with Childe Hassam’s impressionistic depictions of Appledore, but scores of other artists, before and since, have responded magnificently to these remote, rock-bound islands. Surveying the broad variety of artistic approaches to depicting the Shoals offers something of a history-in-miniature of American landscape painting.
