  • Marsden Hartley is an amazingly under recognized artist. His life and artistic growth influenced by artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Thomas Hart Benton. It is not very often that you get the opportunity to see more than one or two pieces of his works at a time, or to hear someone lecture about him. This Show is high on my list of must see.
