From artist colonies to robber baron “summer cottages,” the New England shoreline has inspired countless creative works.
Jane Oneail, founder of Culturally Curious, will present a virtual program that will look at seascapes and shorelines by beloved American artists Wednesday, July 20, 2-3 p.m. Register at tinyurl.com/Zoom-Seaside-Escapes.
Oneail’s presentation will touch on Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper as well as the over-the-top elegance of Newport, Rhode Island summer homes designed for the titans of industry in the 19th century. Gloucester’s eccentric summer retreat Beauport will also be featured in this program.
