A Break in the Clouds

On exhibition May 1, 2021 - June 30, 2021

Vose Galleries is pleased to present A Break in the Clouds, an exhibition showcasing twenty hand-curated paintings by a variety of American artists from the 19th & 20th centuries.  With the rays of hope spreading across the country as we start to come out of this deadly pandemic, the exhibition features the best paintings from our collection that we feel sure will lift everyone’s spirits. With fresh and rare beach scenes by Charles Hawthorne and Leslie Prince Thompson, colorful garden scenes by Boston School women painters Lee Lufkin Kaula and Edith Scott, and lively landscapes and seascapes by Jane Peterson, William Trost Richards, Robert Salmon, and Theodore Wendel, we believe there is something that will appeal to everyone. We hope you will make an appointment to come see these important works in person, viewable May 1st through June 30th at our brownstone on Newbury Street in Boston. We are also happy to offer virtual tours of the exhibition to anyone who may not be able to visit in person. Join us in celebrating what we hope is a 'break in the clouds’ after what have been such trying times for our country, and the world at large.

Sensations of Spring

On exhibition March 9, 2021 - May 18, 2021

The scrunch of melting snow yielding under our boots; the late afternoon sunlight enveloping the world in a dewy haze, providing warmth and nourishment for flora, fauna, and man alike; the fragrance of newborn blossoms emerging from their slumber to meet the world afresh, offering visual beauty and emotional comfort. These are the sensations of spring, the tangible impressions that greet us each year and usher in a time of rejuvenation for both Nature and the soul. In our exhibition, we’ve selected over 20 examples from the gallery’s traditional and contemporary artists that embody the season. Sensations of Spring is viewable on our website through May 18th, 2021.
