During the early decades of the twentieth century, American artists established their own creative societies while actively resisting academic and aesthetic traditions. On sojourn from Boston, artist Charles Woodbury first ventured to Narrow Cove in 1888 and established the Ogunquit Summer School of Drawing and Painting in 1898. In 1903, artist, writer, critic, and collector Hamilton Easter Field founded The Summer School of Graphic Arts across the bridge in Perkins Cove. Established artists of the New York School, students of art, gallerists, collectors, and tourists soon followed. Today, the view from Narrow Cove and the heritage associated with Ogunquit, continue to compel artists, connoisseurs, sightseers, and sunbathers to the seacoast. The exhibition is organized by the Ogunquit Museum of American Art and generously supported by Brenda Leclerc and Laurel Seneca.
