The show, curated by Annette Blaugrund, former director of the National Academy Museum, focuses on Albert Bierstadt’s east coast paintings and offers a rare opportunity to see these little known but magnificent works. Best known for his iconic images of the American West, Bierstadt created an important body of work that depict botanical and geological details in the unspoiled wilderness, mountains, and meadows in the White Mountains, Hudson Valley, and other scenic locations in New England and New York.

A lecture with the curator will be held at 2 pm, to be followed by an open house from 3‐5 pm. The Thomas Cole Historic Site is located at 218 Spring Street, Catskill, New York. For information visit www.thomascole.org or call 518‐943‐7465.
