The Florence County Museum will host their monthly Public Lecture Series on Thursday at 6 p.m. This month’s topic is about artist Edward Gay.
Edward Gay (1837 – 1928) was a prolific American landscape painter. He was a member of the National Academy of Design and a close friend of the influential artist George Inness. This lecture by museum curator Stephen W. Motte will explore Gay’s unique connection to the South and discuss his art in the context of shifting philosophies which transformed American painting at the turn of the century.
This is free and open to the public.
