The Providence Art Club is very pleased to present an exhibition of work by members of Boston’s historic St. Botolph Club in the Dodge House Gallery this August. This exhibition was juried by the Art Club’s Gallery Manager Michael Rose.
Just like The Providence Art Club, the St. Botolph Club was founded in 1880. Beginning as a common space to connect members to the thriving creative hub of Boston, the St. Botolph Club became an epicenter for the discussion of emerging literature, music, architecture, public affairs, and, of course, art. St. Botolph Club was aptly named for the patron Saint of wayfarers, who also had a good sense of humor and a kind spirit. St. Bostolph is the Patron Saint of Boston, England and Boston, Massachusetts. Originally a gentleman’s club, St. Botolph opened its doors to women in 1988 and continues to be an active center for cultural pursuits housed in a beautiful, historic mansion at 199 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston’s Back Bay.
The selected artists are as follows:
Tom Dahill, Emanuela De Musis, Ruth Fields**, Steve Foote, Jane Goldman, Allan Green, Wendy Hale, Carol Hartman, Oana Lauric**, B. Glee Lucas, George Lynde**, Anthony Moore**, John McConnell, Allison Newsome, David Wells Roth**, Ellen Schon, Steve Trefonides, Nan Tull**, Carol Unger, Frances Webb, and Yu-Wen Wu**
