Can a garden be a painting? Find out at the Hunter Museum
The world of Impressionism is at your fingertips! Technically, it’s at The Hunter Museum of American Art, where, this Sunday afternoon, Scott Drucker of Dream Gardens Landscape Design and Installation will team up with a Hunter educator to explore the skill behind some of the most breathtaking Impressionist paintings, and you’re invited. Admission is free for Hunter members, and is $15 for non-members.
“The Flowering of an Artful Garden: Impressions in Paint” is in conjunction with the ongoing “Monet & American Impressionism” exhibit and will allow for deeper insight into Monet’s phenomenal skill and timeless talent. A wide variety of American Impressionists are included in the exhibition, with painting dates ranging between 1880-1920.
According to the Hunter,“These artists adapted the innovations of French Impressionism and ultimately paved the way to a uniquely American style of painting in the 19th century.”
With the aid of your Hunter educator, discover the history of Impressionist flowering as well as how this painting style influenced today’s design. Also, pause to consider the talent that allows for something so in the moment to be created and how such paintings still captivate us today.
