10/09/2013 to 01/12/2014

39 Strickland Rd., Cos Cob, CT 06807. Phone: 203-869-6899.

Beginning October 9, the Greenwich Historical Society is presenting The New Spirit and the Cos Cob Art Colony: Before and After the Armory Show, which, for the first time, shows the direct impact of the Armory Show on the Cos Cob art colony artists. It also highlights the involvement of Cos Cob artists, such as Elmer MacRae and Henry Fitch Taylor, in producing the Armory Show, and brings the public's attention to several of the accomplished Cos Cob artists who have been virtually unknown until now. "This is the first exhibition to illustrate the Armory Show's direct influence on a group of artists, specifically the Cos Cob art colony," says Valerie Ann Leeds, guest curator of The New Spirit. Viewers will be able to compare artists' works from before and after the Armory Show and see to what degree each embraced Modernism as the movement became assimilated into the mainstream of American art. The tightly focused exhibition is comprised of 41 works of art by 12 Cos Cob artists, including several pieces that were shown in the 1913 Armory Show, and enhanced with archival material and ephemera from the Greenwich Historical Society and private and museum collections. In addition to MacRae and Taylor, the show features artists D. Putnam Brinley, Childe Hassam, Ernest Lawson, Carolyn C. Mase, Frank A. Nankivell, Allen Tucker, Alden Twachtman and J. Alden Weir. It also includes influential pioneering artists Theodore Robinson and John H. Twachtman, whose works were part of the Armory Show but who had died years earlier. A number of related events and programs are planned in conjunction with the exhibition, and a catalog for the exhibit is available.
