Mountain As Muse

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Mountain as Muse Exhibit Open 9-12 pm

For almost 200 years artists have focused on the landscape of Mount Monadnock as a subject for the canvases.  For these artists, Monadnock has been a source of inspiration for their art.  For some artists, the mountain may have inspired a single painting; for some, it was one of many subjects on which they focused, and for a few, such as William Preston Phelps, it was their main subject and source of inspiration. This exhibit will share the art of painters, the words of authors, the sound of music, and much more.  It will explore the lives of the artists and what their work tells us about the mountain, the region, and the artists themselves.

The summer exhibit, “Mountain as Muse,” will be open until August 30, 2024. Admission to the exhibit is $5.00/ person or free for members of the Historical Society and youth under age 18.
