The Summer Exhibit - Women's Work: The Artistry of the Women of the Cornish Colony

Can you spot a Pulitzer Prize winner?

An artist whose works sell in the millions?

One of the most successful women sculptors in American history?

An inspirational writer whose works are still in print?

A First Lady and also an accomplished artist?

A local actress who was the first woman to appear on the cover of Time Magazine?

If not, then perhaps you should plan on visiting the Cornish Colony Museum sometime this summer and see and learn about the many accomplishments of the women artists, sculptors, writers, and actresses of this area.

The summer exhibit, Women's Work: The Artistry of the Women of the Cornish Colony, is in full swing at the Cornish Colony Museum. Drop in and see featured works by some of the finest Gilded Age artists: Bessie Potter Vonnoh, Edith Prellwitz, Annetta St. Gaudens, Helen Mears, Frances Grimes and Laura Gardin Fraser. You'll also learn about the many performing artists, authors, politicians and activists featured in the exhibit.

Open all summer, Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 5pm.

Never fear – we have not neglected the men of the Cornish Colony. Also on exhibit are works by James Earle Fraser, Frederic Remington, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Daniel Chester French, Paul Manship and, of course, Maxfield Parrish.

We look forward to seeing you at the Museum!

I like your blog! It's good to see how another small museum is getting itself out there on the net, well done! ; )
