mnews74Marguerite Zorach—An Art-Filled Life is an exhibition that brings together sixty paintings and textiles by Marguerite Thompson Zorach made between 1910 and 1965. In highlighting her contributions as a modernist who helped changed the course of American art, the Farnsworth presents the full range of her skills and tells the story of her career as a painter, her participation in New Deal era mural projects, and her distinctive embroideries and their autobiographic significance. It also explores the many ways in which her surroundings, often the subject of her many paintings, prints, poems and textiles, were also shaped by her art. Learn more
