Registration Required (Zoom) / Adults Ages 18 & Up

Known as, “America’s favorite illustrator,” Norman Rockwell is best known for his relatable scenes of modern American life with subjects selected for their broad appeal: families, holiday celebrations, and young love. Rockwell was also fond of making paintings about painting and the art world in general, topics one wouldn’t necessarily associate with commercial art for the middle class. On Thursday, July 20 at 7 PM, join the Nesmith Library in conjunction with other GMILCS libraries for the fourth event in our Art Series with Jane Oneail, Norman Rockwell on Art. This virtual Zoom program considers the various ways Rockwell explored art making and museums over the course of his career, with a healthy dose of the artist’s good humor.

Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a master’s degree in Art History from Boston University and a master’s degree in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at the NH Institute of Art. Find out more about Jane, and her art programs, on her website:
