From the sandy beaches of Lynn and Swampscott to the rugged fishing communities of Cape Ann to the marshes of Ipswich, Boston ’s North Shore has long been a magnet for artists from America and Europe .

Winslow Homer, the Impressionist Childe Hassam, and Maurice Prendergast are just a few of the famous painters who were drawn to the area and left behind their visual impressions of its natural beauty and residents.

Join Jim McAllister as he traces the development of the lively North Shore art scene between 1870 and 1930. McAllister will profile some of the area’s home grown painters, including Frank Weston Benson, Arthur Wesley Dow, and Charles Woodbury. He will also look at specific North Shore locales, especially the Lynn Beach area, Ipswich, and East Gloucester , where artists gathered to paint. 

McAllister’s talk will be heavily illustrated with images of works depicting North Shore scenes by both resident and visiting artists. These works will range from urban views of Gloucester by John Sloan, Edward Hopper, and Stuart Davis, to woodblock prints of the Ipswich River by Arthur Wesley Dow; to the charming naive paintings by Marblehead ’s J.O.J. Frost.
