New Hampshire Antique Co-op is pleased to present a gallery talk by the acclaimed Cape Cod & maritime artist William R. Davis, a contemporary luminist painter inspired by the 19th and 20th century Boston School.
William R. Davis, a contemporary luminist painter inspired by the 19th and 20th century Boston School, will present a lecture, “The Boston Guild & Painting in New England,” in the Upstairs Gallery at New Hampshire Antique Co-op on Sunday, March 13th at 1 p.m. The one-hour lecture is followed by a wine and cheese reception.
Davis is a nationally recognized marine and landscape painter who specializes in highly detailed yachting and schooner scenes as well as landscapes of the White Mountains. His paintings capture the serene light of sunrise and sunset, where he employs many of the techniques traditionally used by American luminosity painters. Davis is a member of the Guild of Boston Artists, a non-profit association of painters and sculptors. Founded in 1914, the Guild owns and operates a gallery on Newbury Street in Boston.
Davis maintains a studio on Cape Cod and paints en plein air throughout New England. He has received numerous awards and accolades for his outstanding work and his paintings are exhibited widely, including at the Guild of Boston Artists, Mystic Seaport Museum, Copley Society and Cape Cod Museum of Fine Art.
This presentation is held in conjunction with New Hampshire Antique Co-op’s exhibits, The Boston School: 19th & 20th c. Paintings and From Land to Sea: Contemporary Works by William Davis, on view in the galleries through April 30, 2016.
