In October 1912, the Bruce Museum hosted its first exhibition of art. At the time, the Greenwich Press noted that it was a welcome change to see “a long gallery hung with paintings from the best works of local artists.”
Since then, the Bruce Museum has not only exhibited many paintings and sculptures by local artists, such as Childe Hassam and Charles Harold Davis, but has also acquired works on behalf of the Town of Greenwich that represent significant moments from the history of art. Canvas and Cast celebrates several new acquisitions and allows visitors to encounter a range of objects created by European and American artists from the 16th to the 20th century, including portraiture, landscape, still lifes, and genre scenes.
