Gertrude Fiske Art Exhibit

Poster for exhibit, labeled: Portsmouth Historical Society presents: Gertrude Fiske, American Master

Two Weston Historical Society paintings are on view at a major exhibition, Gertrude Fiske: American Master, at the Portsmouth Historical Society in Portsmouth, NH, through September 30. Gertrude Fiske was Weston’s most acclaimed artist. The exhibition of some 60 works celebrates a “major figure in American Impressionism” who deserves to be better known.

Portsmouth, NH is only one hour and fifteen minutes away via Rt. 95 north.
