Three of the Illuminating Tarbell: Legacy in Action exhibit’s featured artists have been recipients of Tarbell’s Boston School training legacy. They are also teachers. At this event, they will discuss the unique ideas and skills they pass on to their students enabling them to master the truth and beauty of the visual impression. The training begins with the classical skills acquired through cast drawing and modeling, then in still life and figure painting, always aiming towards achieving the vibrant beauty of color in natural light. Let them show you how that training plays out in their work and why it is a vial and dynamic form in today’s world.

For reservations for the lecture, please call Discover Portsmouth at 603-436-8433.
