SCAA: THE EARLY YEARS
The late 19th century brought many professional artists to South County. Renewed interest in their work a century later has shed new light on South County as a community of gifted artists, many of whom were associated with the SCAA in its earliest days. Historian and curator Joan Youngken has focused her research for the past decade on artists of late-19th and early-20th century South County, and has been spending the past year helping the Art Association organize and preserve its archives. In doing so she has discovered more about the earliest members of the organization, particularly Mary Helme Hale, and about the earliest decisions of the organization in determining its future. In this illustrated lecture, she will describe her discoveries from the archives and how they relate to the larger context of artists at that time in South County. Come find out more about the history of our organization, our original members, and the contributions of South County artists. Light refreshments will be served.
Presenter: Joan Youngken
October 29, 7:00 PM
