New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenæum's Prints & Photographs Collection

This exciting exhibition will showcase contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs by New England artists. The works on display—drawings, watercolors, linocuts, lithographs, hand-toned silver gelatin prints, digital photographs, and more—will reflect artistic interpretations of New England’s built and natural environment.

Attendees are invited to view the gallery beginning at 5:30 pm, after which the Athenæum’s Curator of Prints & Photographs, Catharina Slautterback, will make brief remarks. Wine and cheese will be served.
