Illuminating Tarbell: Life and Art on the Piscataqua March 3 to June 3, 2016 | Discover Portsmouth Center, Portsmouth, NH This unique and multifaceted two-part exhibition is devoted to the American Impressionist artist, Edmund C. Tarbell (1862-1938). A pioneer of the “Boston School” of painting, he took a summer residence in nearby Newcastle, New Hampshire in 1905, where he lived intermittently for the rest of his life. Some fifty-five works from his more than thirty years of residency along the Piscataqua River capture the painter’s vision of his family, friends, and clients, as well as the river and surrounding landscape. A highlight of the show will be a meticulous reconstruction of Tarbell’s studio, reproduced from evidence contained in original photographs. Equipped with his paintings, furnishings, studio props, photographs, letters and ephemera, it reveals items still cherished today by his family. www.portsmouthhistory.org
