From artists' colonies to robber barons' “summer cottages,” the New England shoreline has inspired countless creative works. On Thursday, August 17 at 7 PM, join Nesmith Library in conjunction with other GMILCS libraries for the fifth event in our Art Series with Jane Oneail, Seaside Escapes: The Art and Architecture of the New England Coast. This virtual Zoom program looks at seascapes by beloved American artists including Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper, as well as the over-the-top elegance of Newport, RI summer homes designed for the titans of industry in the nineteenth century. Gloucester's eccentric summer retreat Beauport is also featured.

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.
