Barbara Swan (1922-2003), a well-known Boston artist whose still lifes were widely exhibited and collected beginning in the mid 1960s began her career in the late 1940s as a student of noted Boston Expressionist, Karl Zerbe. This exhibition provides a historical overview of Swan’s artistic career, tracing her early work from the late 1940s, her expressive paintings as a new mother and drawings of her friends and fellow artists in the 1960s, to the subject that would dominate her later work: objects transformed through water-filled bottles.

This exhibition runs from October 27 – December 9, 2012 (Closed November 12 and 21-25).

Museum hours: Open Mon  - Wed , 10 am - 4 pm: Thurs. 10 am - 8 pm: Sat. and Sun. 1 pm - 4 pm; Closed Fridays
