The Arkell Museum at Canajoharie is celebrating the homecoming of its Winslow Homer works with a reception, talk and music on Friday, September 5, 2014 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Katie Boardman of First Frost Traditions will be performing Romantic and rustic melodies for the 19th century on guitar, pump organ, mandolin, fiddle and hammer dulcimer. Diane Forsberg, Arkell Museum Director, and art historian Martha Hoppin, will present short talks in the gallery at 6:30 pm. The event is open to everyone. Members are free and the charge for not-yet members is $12. The exhibition, which was on view at the Fnimore Art Museum, features Winslow Homer watercolors and oil paintings purchased by Bartlett Arkell in the 1930s and 1940s for the Canajoharie gallery and his personal collection. The Homer works on exhibit span Homer's career from his first works in oil, to his first watercolors up to his fantastic marine painting at Prout’s Neck, Maine "Watching the Breakers--A High Sea." Winslow Homer: The Nature and Rhythm of Life will remain on display at the Arkell Museum through January 4, 2015.
