Marion Huse: Picturing Pownal
On view through June 22, 2022
Bennington Museum
Bennington, Vermont

Marion Huse (1896-1967) was an artist whose work spanned forty years and a variety of styles and subject matter, from Regionalism in the 1930s to a more Expressionistic style that she developed in the post-war years. A native of Massachusetts, she achieved a degree of success unusual for a woman of her day, founding and operating the Springfield Art School from 1925 to 1940 and serving as supervisor of WPA art projects for western Massachusetts from 1936 to 1938.

A selection of her prints, depicting historic local landmarks and covered bridges, is shown in this exhibition alongside her paintings.
