The late 19th century brought many professional artists to South County. Renewed interest in their work a century later has shed new light on South County as a community of gifted artists. Ellen Day Hale, Philip Leslie Hale, Wil-liam Trost Richards, Anna Richards Brewster, Frank Convers Mathewson (founder of the SCAA), and others were inspired to paint the landscapes of South County as well as evocative “portraits” of local houses and gardens. Historian and curator Joan Youngken has focused her research for the past decade on artists of late-19th and early-20th century South County. In an illustrated lecture, she will describe local work of these and other artists and explore the connections with the SCAA. Come find out more about the history of our organization, our original members, and the contributions of South County artists. Light refreshments will be served.
