SHELBURNE, VT.- Painting at Home with Grandma Moses, a new online exhibition featuring paintings and archival materials from the collections of Shelburne Museum and Bennington Museum in partnership with Grandma Moses Properties Co., launched on June 18.

Painting at Home with Grandma Moses highlights Anna Mary Robertson “Grandma” Moses’s methodical artistic process and varying sources of inspiration that reveal the artist’s work as complex, thoughtful, and thoroughly modern. The exhibition focuses on the artist’s landscapes of the imagination for the modern era that stir feelings of nostalgia for decades past. The exhibition is accompanied by interactive experiences including recorded talks from curators, conservation insights and educational activities.

“This interactive exhibition provides an in-depth analysis of Moses’s artistic influences and techniques,” said Associate Curator Carolyn Bauer, who organized the exhibition in partnership with Bennington Museum. “Throughout Painting at Home with Grandma Moses there are insightful object comparatives exemplifying the varying methods this beloved artist applied to create her recognizable paintings, including popular source materials and her ability to combine real and imagined memories.”

This is not the first time Shelburne and Bennington museums have collaborated on a Moses exhibition. In 2016-17 the museums presented the exhibition and catalog Grandma Moses: American Modern.

“When the Bennington and Shelburne museums collaborated on Grandma Moses: American Modern it was a perfect match,” said Bennington Curator Jaime Franklin. “Now in 2020, with the pandemic forcing museums to think outside the box, collaborations are more important than ever. Over the last three months, as museums across the globe have quickly pivoted to providing content and programming online, Bennington and Shelburne have been leaders in our state. I am totally delighted that we could renew our collaboration, this time to share Moses's work to the world via the online exhibition Painting at Home with Grandma Moses.”

Painting at Home with Grandma Moses is the third exclusively online exhibition launched by Shelburne Museum since temporarily closing due to the coronavirus pandemic. The first, Color, Pattern, Whimsy, & Scale, is an exploration of museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb’s passion for American folk art and her collecting ethos as she assembled one of the earliest and largest collections that would become the foundation for the museum. The second, American Stories, draws inspiration from Shelburne’s vast holdings of American art, architecture and material culture, to examine the American experience in four parts —People, Travel, Home and Community.
