Winslow Homer: The Pleasures of Summer

Sat June19 / 4-6pm Opening Reception. Members and Press 4-5pm / Public Welcome 5-6pm. On View through July 25 at the Woodhouse Gallery

This exhibition focuses on Winslow Homer, as both painter and illustrator, who visited East Hampton and took as his subject matter the pleasures of summertime. He depicted young adults and children on beaches, hiking on trails and riding on bridle paths. In virtually all these images, the idyllic weather, youthful figures, and cleansing freshness of incoming tides, mountain streams, and flowering meadows speak of a new beginning, a healing of American society after the national trauma of the Civil War.
