Welcome to the Painting The American Scene Blog

Sadly, we've been notified of the cancellation of the multi-venue exhibition described in our previous blogpost.  Increased costs and pandemic-related complications conspired to render the exhibition no longer feasible.  The good news is that we will no longer be obliged to endure three years without our art; the bad news is that the public will not have the chance to rediscover the long neglected artists of the Thirties and Forties whose works grace our walls.  We remain open to opportunities to share our collection or lend specific artworks under appropriate circumstances in the future.

We’re pleased to report that preparations are underway for a catalogued exhibition of our collection currently projected to open at the New Britain Museum of American Art in May of 2023.  The show is slated to travel to six additional venues: Asheville Art Museum, Columbus Museum of Art, Hunter Museum of American Art (Chatanooga, TN), Westmoreland Museum of American Art (Greensburg, PA), Georgia Museum of Art and Tucson Museum of Art.  Updates will be posted as additional details become available.

Welcome to the Blog Page of our brand new website. In the future, we hope to post on this page our thoughts (and, hopefully, those of some of our visitors) about the painters of the American Scene, the art of the Thirties and Forties, the strategies,  joys and perils of collecting and other topics arising directly or indirectly from the content of our website. We'd like to make this a cooperative venture, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, either to sign up for updates (using our Contact page) or to participate in our informal forum on the painters and art of the American Scene.
