Fidelia Bridges: The Artful Sketch

April 22 – August 27, 2023

This exhibition celebrates the life and career of noted watercolorist Fidelia Bridges (1834-1923). Despite inauspicious beginnings as an orphan growing up in Massachusetts, she became one of the preeminent women artists of her time and was the first woman member of the seminal American Watercolor Society. As an artist, she developed an elegant and exacting style, most often portraying birds and botanicals.
