Groton History Center, Boutwell House, 172 Main Street
Sunday, October 17th at 1 p.m.
We are fortunate to have Groton Neighbor member Carolyn Perkins provide us with a private tour and overview of the History Center and an extraordinary art exhibit. Participating artist and member Mary Minifie will speak about her paintings and those of Edmund Tarbell, both of which are featured at the Boutwell House.
“Sense of Place” is a themed project sponsored by the Groton History Center bringing together an extended group of talented people in our area in order to each create an inspired piece of art that is related to this theme. The J. D. Poor murals at the Groton Inn, the recently acquired carved birds by Harvey Sargisson, and our current exhibit of portraits in the collection all suggest our connection to the arts from the past. The goal is to capture a glimpse of the arts in the 2020s looking back to the future.”
