Broad Strokes - American Painting from the Late 19th and 20th Centuries from the FAM Collection

Wednesday, Jul 31, 2019 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm


Broad Strokes explores a dynamic period in American painting in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The exhibition reveals significant stylistic shifts and artistic developments that were catalyzed by the drastic social changes of post-Civil War America, including major historic events like World War I and the Great Depression. The variety of approaches American artists engaged during this time is evident in works by renowned artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and lesser-known artists like local Fitchburg painter Constance Bigelow.

FAM is open with free admission for all on the first Thursday of each month, 3:00 – 7:00 pm
