Frank E. Schoonover: American Visions
November 10th, 2018 through May 27th, 2019 Frank E. Schoonover's (1877-1972) legendary adventure paintings were inspired by the belief that artists should live what they paint-an adage often repeated by his noted teacher, illustrator Howard Pyle, and absorbed by his fellow student and friend, N.C. Wyeth. This exhibition will explore the breadth of this important Golden Age artist's career, beginning with Schoonover's art school experiences as a student in Pyle's classes at the then newly founded Drexel Institute of Art, Science, and Industry in Philadelphia, beginning in 1896, and his time at the Chadds Ford Summer School in 1899, where he honed his skills among other gifted Pyle pupils. This exhibition will feature Schoonover's paintings for such classic stories as "Kidnapped", "Robinson Crusoe", "Swiss Family Robinson", and "Ivanhoe", as well as illustrations for the novels of Zane Grey. Eighty original paintings, drawings and studies will be on view, as will archival photographs and examples of the artist's daybooks and personal effects. Art ©Frank E.

Nature Playgroup at Naumkeag

The Trustees joins with local health provider, Community Health Programs (CHP), this spring at Naumkeag to offer families with young children an opportunity to get outside and explore the wonders of nature at this amazing property. Participants meet at the lower parking lot where we will then depart to a different part of the property each week. Children and adults can expect to get wet and dirty during this program where the children will guide us in discovery. Small snacks of almonds and dried fruit are provided by the local coop and participants are welcome to bring their own snacks. Everyone should consider having a hat and water with them. This program is very popular so requires pre-registration by emailing or calling the week before and is best for 2.5 and up. This program requires walking and is not friendly to strollers

The Town of Stockbridge Massachusetts was founded in 1793 and is located in Berkshire County.

There is so much to do in Stockbridge and those in town should take a drive down the most famous Main Street in America which was painted by Norman Rockwell. There are many historical homes in the town which include the Merwin House and the Mission House as well as Naumkeag. Other attractions I the community are the Chesterwood Museum and the studio of Daniel Chester French who was the sculptor of “The Minute Man” and the Lincoln Memorial. There is also the new Rockwell museum as well as the Berkshire Botanical Garden and Tanglewood which is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Now days the town is a quiet rural bedroom community with a lot of history as well as integrity for the future!
