NEW BEDFORD, MASS. —The New Bedford Whaling Museum (NBWM) is honoring the centennial anniversary of the passing of New Bedford-born artist Albert Pinkham Ryder with a lecture on Tuesday, March 28, at 7 pm. It will be preceded by a reception beginning at 6 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Presenters include curator of exhibitions and collections Dr. Christina Connett; collections committee member Fran Levin; curator of Old Dartmouth history Arthur Motta; author and historian Peggi Medeiros; and artist Nicholas Whitman. The speakers will provides new perspectives on one of New Bedford’s finest and most internationally renowned artists.
Known for his somber, expressive works that grace the collections of great national and international museums, Ryder influenced a generation of Modernist artists, who were inspired by his emotive use of broad abstracted planes of color. The NBWM has an exquisite landscape by the artist in its permanent collections, and a discussion of this work and the artist’s connection to New Bedford will be the topic of the lecture.
The New Bedford Whaling Museum is at 18 Johnny Cake Hill. For information, 508-997-0046 or www.whalingmuseum.org.
