Historical Society to hold art tour

Paint your very own Modernist works at the Greenwich Historical Society’s second Sunday Family Program on Nov. 10.

The event will begin in the Storehouse Gallery with a brief tour of the current exhibition, The New Spirit and the Cos Cob Art Colony: Before and After the Armory Show, along with a gallery activity and a discussion about the before and after effects of the 1913 Armory Show. The Armory Show was the first large exhibition of modern art in the United States and one that introduced astonished Americans to European avant-garde artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne.

Following the gallery tour, program leader and professional artist Deborah Bonnell will explore Modernist concepts and techniques in a studio workshop so participants can paint their own pieces. Ms. Bonnell is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and works in a variety of media — oil on canvas, monoprint, encaustic, pastel and watercolor — to explore the natural world.

All materials included for the program will be provided. The tour and workshop are appropriate for “kids” ages three to 99. The event will be held Sunday, Nov. 10, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Participants are asked to meet at the Storehouse Gallery at the Greenwich Historical Society, 39 Strickland Road. The fee is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
