The College Club of Boston Speaker Series presents
"The Making of My Dear Girl" by Helen Marie Casey
Wednesday, February 27 at 6pm
$30 members/$35 non-members, plus tax and club charge
Florence Armes Hosmer, who lived from 1880 to 1978, is an all-but-forgotten American artist. In her time, she was acknowledged as one of Boston's premier portrait painters. How does an artist fall from view? Why? Can her story be re-constructed and, if it can, what does it teach us? What do we learn from the almost 500 paintings left in Miss Hosmer's home in Sudbury? What do we learn from the letters and notebooks left in the house? These are among the questions that Helen Marie Casey, a poet and biographer, will address as she discusses her book, "My Dear Girl: The Art of Florence Hosmer".
