March 28, 2017
Lecture: 7 pm | Reception: 6 pm
Honoring the centennial anniversary of the passing of New Bedford-born artist Albert Pinkham Ryder.
Curator of Exhibitions and Collections Dr. Christina Connett; Collections Committee Member Fran Levin; Curator of Old Dartmouth History Arthur Motta; Author and Historian Peggi Medeiros; and artist Nicholas Whitman presented new perspectives on one of New Bedford’s finest and most internationally renowned artists. Known for his somber expressive works, which grace the collections of great national and international museums, Ryder influenced a generation of modernist artists, who were inspired by his emotive use of broad abstracted planes of color.
