ABOUT THE EVENT
Artist and Writers | Carol Lacoss
For the exhibition Women Reframe the American Landscape, Docent Carol Lacoss will link Susie Barstow and other women painters from the Hudson River School with the nineteenth-century writers Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Jacobs, and Emily Dickinson—drawing parallels with their imagery and perception of nature, as well as the courage, perseverance, and independent spirit these artists and writers showed throughout their lives.
About: Carol Lacoss, a Docent at the NBMAA, has developed the series "Artists and Writers," a program linking visual artists with their contemporary writers. Previous talks on artists in special exhibitions included Kara Walker, Georgia O'Keeffe, Maurice Prendergast, and Dennis Hopper. In the spring of 2022, Lacoss linked the artists in the Poetry of Nature exhibition to the nineteenth-century Transcendentalists. She has a B.A. from the University of Connecticut, an M.A.T. from Brown University, and taught English, including American Literature and American Studies, at Glastonbury High School for thirty-five years
