Charles Webster Hawthorne art reception, Nov. 8

Brenau Galleries invites you to join us for a reception celebrating our special exhibition “Charles Webster Hawthorne: Paintings from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Doug Ivester” on Friday, Nov. 8, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Theatre on the Square Lobby in the Brenau Downtown Center.

On loan from the collection of Doug and Kay Ivester are 29 oil paintings and watercolors by American artist Charles Webster Hawthorne (1872-1930). Renowned for his portraits and genre paintings, Hawthorne was instrumental in the founding of the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899. This ongoing exhibition highlights a selection of works representative of Hawthorne’s style. Join the Ivesters, Brenau’s Ivester College of Health Sciences and the Brenau University Galleries for a reception celebrating this exhibition on Nov. 8.
