New York City Bus Trip sponsored by Manchester Art Association to view Two Amazing Exhibits. In the morning, view Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence, a special exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In the afternoon, view the American Watercolor Society Annual Show at the Salmagundi Club.
Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence will feature some 150 works by more than 70 artists, spanning the late eighteenth through early twentieth century. The important role of parks and gardens in French life is richly illustrated by paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, illustrated books, and objects in The Met collection by artists extending from Camille Corot to Henri Matisse, many of whom were gardeners themselves.
In its 151st year, The American Watercolor Society Exhibition is arguably the world’s premier watercolor exhibit. More than 1,200 artists from throughout the United States and 27 foreign countries submit their work to a panel of jurors chosen from Signature Members of the AWS. From these submissions (one per artist), the exhibition paintings are selected.
