  • The Lightnter Museum presents two shows featuring American Impressionist paintings in an exhibit that runs from Thursday, April 8 through July 5, 2021.

    One exhibit, American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection, features paintings by John Twachtman, Gari Melchers, George Inness, and more — all painters who were inspired to paint intimate scenes of the country and figure studies of people they knew. The Huntington Museum of Art in West Virginia organized the exhibit which is on tour by International Arts & Artists in Washington, D.C.

    The photo below shows a section of "Gully at Low Tide" by John Sloan. This is a painting from the Huntington exhibit and was painted in 1904.

    The second exhibit has a local flavor, St. Augustine in a New Light: American impressionism from the Collection of the Lightner Museum, is composed of works created by Impressionist painters who wintered in St. Augustine during the latter years of the 19th century, selling their art to the tourists who spent the season at Henry Flagler's hotels. The works presented here all depict scenes from St. Augustine.

    The painting below is "King Street Looking East" and the artist is Felix F. de Crano. This painting is from the collection of the Lightner Museum.

    Admission: Adults, $15.00; Seniors, College Students, and Military $12.00; Youth from 12 to 17, $8.00; 11 and under, free.

    When: April 8, 2021 through July 5, 2020, from Monday through Sunday, 9"00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
