ARTSCAPADES with Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman


ARTSCAPADES with Robin Hoffman

March 12 @ 4 pm

Connecticut Art Colonies: the Artists of Cos Cob, Lyme, and Silvermine

Art colonies flourished in the early 20th century during a period of sweeping social, cultural, and artistic change in America. Art colonies tended to form in small towns that provided affordable living, abundant scenery for painting, and relatively easy access to large cities where artists could sell their work. 

ArtScapades will look at the most well-known art colonies in Connecticut, putting them in context with what was going on in the art world at the time. Artists included in this discussion are John Twachtman, J. Alden Weir, Theodore Robinson, Henry Ward Ranger, Childe Hassam, Solon Borglum and D. Putnam Brinley, among others.

The event is free to members and $5 for all others. Refreshments will be served.

We are excited to announce that construction on the Jim and Dede Bartlett Center for New Canaan History is underway! Events will occur as scheduled, but because of the logistical challenges in the main building, the portrait exhibition is available by appointment only. Please contact
