Watercolor Landscapes of the Northeast
examines the varying landscape of the Northeast over the last hundred
or so years. Drawn largely from the Lyman Allyn's permanent collection,
this exhibition includes watercolors of the forest, fields, hills,
shoreline, and sea. It also explores the built environment, with urban
and suburban scenes that reflect on changing demographics. The
exhibition looks at watercolor as a medium, exploring different artists'
techniques and considering how the quick-drying pigments are useful for
artists working outdoors.
