The library, in collaboration with the Canton Museum of Art will present a live, virtual presentation with Christy Davis, the Curator of Exhibitions, on Masterworks from the Age of American Impressionism. Dancing in the Light: Masterworks from the Age of American Impressionism is an original exhibition event on works of American Impressionism, 1878 – c. 1930, with a focus on the uniquely American medium of watercolor. Dancing in the Light is the featured exhibition celebrating CMA’s 85th Anniversary during the 2020-2021 season.
The exhibition features paintings and works on paper borrowed from private collections, museum collections, and Canton Museum of Art’s own collection to tell the story of the movement of American Impressionism from its beginnings in France to the shores of America – and why it is still relevant and approachable today as one of the finest artistic periods. Some the preeminent American masters to be represented will include Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Robert Blum, Theodore Butler, Jane Peterson, William Merritt Chase, Edward Potthast, Ralph Curtis, Childe Hassam, and Alice Schille.
