The "Then" of Fresh Paint

This year the Copley Society of Art is celebrating 140 years of illustrious and vibrant history. To commemorate the historic accomplishments of Co|So, many artist members will be taking inspiration from prominent artworks of Boston when they participate in this year’s Fresh Paint. While we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the finished plein air paintings, we’re taking a look at the historical achievements of those famous artists, many former members of the Copley Society, serving as inspiration to the contemporary counterparts for our biggest event of the year.

Our Favorite Florals Since Fresh Paint

We’re celebrating spring in many ways here at the Copley Society! On April 29th we are hosting our ArtWeek event, Florals and Fresh Paint, at the Four Seasons with an interactive bouquet demonstration from the experts at Winston Flowers. To get ready for the upcoming event we are revisiting the beautiful floral paintings that have been displayed at Co|So in the past year.

Spring - A Renewal

Spring is often regarded as a time for renewal, growth, and expansion. Even though we can achieve these things any time of the year, there is something about the warm air and new growth that push us to take action and make change. Whether that be renewing your space through ritual spring cleaning or a feeling renewal in yourself, artist members of Co|So have captured this energy of spring in Members Show: Renewal.
