A Virtual Walk Around Appledore with Childe Hassam and Hal Weeks: November 1

Hal Weeks 2016Please join us November 1, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the Portsmouth Public Library for a presentation by Hal Weeks, “A Virtual Walk Around Appledore Island with Childe Hassam“.

Hal Weeks is a marine ecologist and New England native, and has a long-term affiliation with Appledore Island and the Shoals Marine Laboratory. Lots of rock-hopping while studying Appledore’s tidepools gave him great familiarity with the island’s rocks, and served as the foundation for a pet project to locate the sites of many Childe Hassam paintings. This led to his contributing to the exhibition “American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isles of Shoals” that is at the Peabody-Essex Museum in Salem MA through November 6th.
