Artful Insight – American Regionalists

February 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- $10

The American Regionalists, also known as American Scene Painters, rejected abstraction in the 1920s and 1930s and created a style that honored realism and a distinctly American identity. Come venture into the world of the American Regionalists, with Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, and other artists! As Benton said himself, “either I would paint in the realistic tradition of Western art with some kind of identification with the natural world, and thus risk being “unprogressive”, or I would follow the new movements toward an unknown goal, a goal which a number of far-sighted critics were already saying might turn out to an empty square of paint.”

Guests may arrive early to reserve their seats. The talk will begin at 3:00pm and last approximately 1 hour. Artful Insights are limited to a small number of visitors and advance reservations are highly recommended, as programs often sell out. Tickets are not refundable for sold-out events.
