Portsmouth Historical Society is showing two exhibits through September 12. Don Gorvett: Working Waterfronts is a solo exhibit highlighting the work of New England artist Don Gorvett. Raised in Massachusetts, Gorvett has spent summers painting in Maine and started his own gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, all the while growing an appreciation for the coastlines and harbors of New England. Working Waterfronts displays sixty of his well-known prints, depicting seascapes and boats. His prints combine mechanical, gritty manmade structures with serene, natural backgrounds. Also at Portsmouth Historical Society is Twilight of American Impressionism, which explores the art of American Impressionists Alice Ruggles Sohier and Frederick A. Bosley. The two were painting at a time when realistic art was falling out of fashion in favor of more abstract art. Regardless, Sohier and Bosley painted impressionist works until their deaths in the mid-twentieth century. These works have rarely been seen in public since their creation, offering a look into both artists' challenges and triumphs. The guest curator of the exhibit, William Brewster, is a descendent of both artists (Sohier's sister married Bosley) and brings a wealth of knowledge to the exhibit. Both Don Gorvett: Working Waterfronts and Twilight of American Impressionism showcase New England artists whose artworks have withstood the test of time and continue to captivate viewers to this day. Portsmouth Historical Society is located at 10 Middle Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and is open 10:00 a.m.—5:00 p.m. daily. For more information, visit portsmouthhistory.org.
