Rotating Exhibitions

An exciting and timely invitation to view paintings held in private hands and usually hung behind closed doors – allowing exploration of the many meanings of the American landscape, both historically to nineteenth-century viewers and today for twenty-first century audiences.

As a resident of Southeastern, MA, Shattuck’s paintings reflect a fascination with the tidal marshes, estuaries and woodlands along our coastline.

Organized as a component of the NBWM exhibition and oral history initiative, Common Ground: Community Stories, “Close Relations” presents an intimate and photographically compelling look at life in the SouthCoast in the early 1970s.

The New Bedford Whaling Museum proudly celebrates and showcases talented regional artists. Featured artist: David Formanek. The exhibition is located on the first floor of the Museum. This area is accessible for free, no admission required.
