It been over two years since we've been to the Currier Museum, so time to go again. On Saturdays, admission is free until noon, so we are planning to meet there at 11:00 AM.

From Homer to Hopper: American Watercolor Masterworks from the Currier Museum of Art
Organized by the Currier Museum of Art
March 6, 2010 - June 7, 2010 (11:30-12:30)

This exhibition features extraordinary works by such nationally known masters as Winslow Homer, Maurice Prendergast, Childe Hassam, Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, Charles Burchfield, John Marin, Charles Sheeler, Stuart Davis, and Andrew Wyeth.

Drawn from the impressive collection the Currier has built over its 80-year history, these watercolors have not been exhibited as a group for two decades because of the fragile nature of the medium. The exhibition includes about seventy five works that trace the history of watercolor over the last 175 years. A strong representation of work by important New Hampshire artists ranges from portraits by nineteenth-century itinerant painter Joseph H. Davis to landscapes by New Hampshire Living Treasure award winner John Hatch and abstract compositions by contemporary painter and sculptor Varujan Boghosian.

Car Pool From Nashua:

Meet at the tennis courts parking lot at the corner of Candlewood Park and Westgate Crossing in Nashua no later than 10:15 AM. To get to Westgate Crossing, from Rout 3 take Exit 5W and stay on Route 111 (Hollis Street). Westgate Crossing is about 1.5 miles west of route 3 on the left, right after you pass a nursing home. Candlewood Park is the first exit on the right. Note, if you want to carpool, please indicate it in the RSVP. I don't plan to come back to Nashua until after the dinner at 5:30 PM.

    Lots of interesting art (...and just a few pieces that I would have not wasted a frame on). If you haven't been to the museum lately, you should go and see what they have.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
