Gallery Talk: After Ryder
September 13, 2018 – AHA! Night
6 pm – 7 pm
Photographer and former Whaling Museum curator Nicholas Whitman offered a gallery talk on his exhibit of photographs related to Albert Pinkham Ryder paintings. His photographs address themes in common with the painter, including moody maritime nocturnes and allegorical interpretations of nature. Whitman’s photographs align with Ryder’s emotive expressionism with a modernist’s view. This event was free and open to the public.

“Ryder’s paintings evoke emotions from a world beneath the surface. He probes dark seas to find a reality illuminated in moonlight.” – Nicholas Whitman
