Albert Pinkham Ryder (1847-1917) wrote, "The new is not revealed to those whose eyes are fastened in worship on the old. The artist of to-day must work with his face turned toward the dawn, steadfastly believing that his dream will come true before the setting of the sun." Yet Ryder himself, who achieved legendary status among fellow artists of his time, became a favorite of subsequent trailblazers like Jackson Pollock, Marsden Hartley, and Robert Rauschenberg, and Ryder continues to influence artists today.
Join a conversation with artists Emily Auchincloss, Bill Jensen, and Nicholas Whitman, and co-curators of the New Bedford Whaling Museum's landmark exhibition "A Wild Note of Longing: Albert Pinkham Ryder and A Century of American Art." Enjoy an exclusive viewing of the exhibition before the discussion. Artists will share their processes, stories, and insights into Ryder and his work. See Ryder's masterpieces from new perspectives, and witness how these artists turn to face the dawn, while honoring Ryder's influence. Exhibition co-curators Christina Connett Brophy, Ph.D., Elizabeth Broune, Ph.D., and William C. Agee will moderate the discussion.
