Scratching the Surface: Edith Loring Peirce Getchell + American Etching Revival
Monday, March 20, 2023 - All Day Event
Scratching the Surface: Edith Loring Peirce Getchell and the American Etching Revival is a student-curated exhibition exploring the career of Edith Loring Peirce Getchell (1855¬1940), who was considered one of the finest etchers of the American Etching Revival (1850-1930). Her landscapes were esteemed for their subtle surface tone and sensitivity of line: Getchell specialized in depicting the moody and atmospheric landscapes of the American Northeast.
This exhibition, curated by Museum of Art Fellowship students, Erin McKeen ‘24, Ember Nevins ’24, and Nikki Tredwell ‘23, presents etchings by Edith Loring Peirce Getchell and her contemporaries drawn from the collection of the Museum of Art.
Scratching the Surface: Edith Loring Peirce Getchell and the American Etching Revival is on view February 27 – May 13, 2023.
The public is invited to a free opening reception on Friday, April 21, 6:00 – 8:00pm.
