We are excited to welcome Jane back for another series of educational and interesting art discussions.  Join us VIRTUALLY on Tuesday, November 22 at 6:30 pm.

One of America’s most celebrated artists, Winslow Homer, was on the front lines of the Civil War documenting battles and moments of quiet contemplation in scenes that have come to define the conflict. Homer’s paintings after the war show a beautiful, if uneasy, peace in America.
