Bringing Light to Life: Frances Weston Hoyt May 26 - Oct. 8
Bringing Light to Life is an exhibit of oil paintings by Frances Weston Hoyt (1908-2005.) Originally from Elizabeth, NJ, Hoyt attended the Art Students League in New York and studied with the renowned painter and teacher, Frank Vincent DuMond. Among DuMond’s students in New York were Norman Rockwell, Georgia O’Keefe, and John Marin. Hoyt’s approach to landscape painting was inspired by DuMond’s development of the “prismatic palette,” a system for the artist to really understand and control value and color. Hoyt’s growth and development as an artist can be seen in the vast number of exhibitions and many awards and honors she has received. But it is the power and beauty of her artwork that speaks for itself. It is our hope that this exhibition will allow Frances Weston Hoyt’s paintings to continue to teach us how to perceive, how to really see, and how to capture light and bring it to life. The exhibit runs from May 26th-October 8th and is displayed on the 2nd floor of the Main House. We are grateful for the generosity of the Hoyt family for the loan of these paintings and artifacts.
