New Hampshire has attracted and inspired artists since the colonial era, but what is distinctive about the art made here? Find out on Wednesday, May 27th at 6pm, when art educator, Jane Oneail, answers this question during our virtual program, Granite State Gallery. Jane will reflect on works by itinerant and folk painters, landscape artists drawn to the state's scenic vistas, and modern artists that adopted bold styles to depict everyday life in the Granite State. Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Childe Hassam, and Maxfield Parrish are some of the artists discussed in this program.

Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at the NH Institute of Art. 

This program is made possible through a generous grant from the New Hampshire Humanities.
