The View From Narrow Cove

Opening its 68th season, OMAA reimagines the Barn Gallery Associates Wing with a rotation of selections from the permanent collection as well as recent acquisitions from the Estate of Michael Kenslea, OMAA board president emeritus. Exploring the roots of the Ogunquit’s heritage as a premier art colony from the late 19th century, the view from Narrow Cove attracted American moderns Robert Henri, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Marsden Hartley, Walt Kuhn, John Marin, and many more. A favorite destination for artists and their students, original founders Charles Woodbury and Hamilton Easter Field established summer programs in drawing, painting, and sculpture, earning Ogunquit the reputation as an “artists’ paradise.” Today, the view from Narrow Cove and the heritage associated with Ogunquit, continue to compel artists, collectors, connoisseurs, and sight-seers to the seacoast.

EXHIBITION SPONSORS: The Ogunquit Museum of American Art is deeply grateful to Brenda Leclerc & Laurel Seneca
