Donna Cassidy is Professor of American & New England Studies and Art History at the University of Southern Maine. Her most recent book, Marsden Hartley: Race, Region, and Nation, led to her current research on U.S. artists in Quebec and Atlantic Canada from 1890 to 1940. In this talk, co-sponsored by the Yarmouth and North Yarmouth historical societies, Cassidy descibes the travels of those artists in the region, and discusses the influence of the landscape and people on their work. (The images that accompanied the talk are protected by copyright, but searching any of the artists’ names in the Artcyclopedia or Google Images should yield some samples.)
