Exhibit: Coast to Coast: Contrasts & Shared Values Across American Impressionism

Blowing Rock Art & History Museum 159 Ginny Stevens Lane, Blowing Rock, NC

Presented in the Rankin West Gallery at Blowing Rock Art & History Museum

Coast to Coast draws connections across impressionist painting as it was practiced on opposite sides of America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on the artists who made the journey—some permanently and some temporarily—and how the relationships that emerged between them led to a dynamic and often divergent approach to plein-air painting.
