Addison Gallery, Andover
My friends, Jeri and Elliot, accompanied me to the Addison Gallery of American Art on the campus of Phillips Andover Academy. Amazing art collection and truly peaceful place! There's a special exhibit called Inside, Outside, Upstairs, Downstairs: The Addison Anew, there through March 27th. I especially loved the Jackson Pollack, Ansel Adams' breathtaking El Capitan, Sunrise, Winter, Yosemite National Park, CA, and seascapes by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O'Keefe -- the latter's work Wave/Night, painted in 1928, was inspired by her two-week vacation at York Beach, Maine in the spring of that year.
