Impressionism in Vermont

Green Mountain Academy presents ‘Impressionism in Vermont’ with Jamie Franklin, curator of the Bennington Museum, on Wednesday, October 22, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Southern Vermont Arts Center. Pioneered by French artists in the late 19th century, Impressionism spread to the US during the early 20th century and became the de facto style for portraying Vermont’s natural scenery. This lecture will discuss the individuals who introduced impressionism to the US and review the works of the artists who migrated to Vermont to capture the bucolic, rural landscapes for which it is  known. Franklin has been curator of the Bennington Museum since 2005. For more information or to register, call 802-867-0111 or visit greenmtnacademy.org. The registration fee is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
