The collection includes the largest grouping of works by native son and renowned marine artist, Fitz Henry Lane, and a Who’s Who of American art including Paul Manship, Cecilia Beaux, Theresa Bernstein, Stuart Davis, Walker Hancock, Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Maurice Prendergast, and Milton Avery among others.

    Presentation from AIS Board Member Mark Daly AIS

    Mark Daly will help you leverage sound to add more life to your paintings and connection with viewers. He will present a new way of thinking about your paintings by helping you answer the question: “How should this painting sound?” Mark will share, compare, and discuss specific examples from past masters of the Rockport Art Association & Museum. He will show how intentionally linking sounds to a painting’s

    design, edgework, paint application, color, and values can improve engagement.


    Mark is a Signature Member of AIS, OPA, ASMA, CAC, and an Artist Member of the

    Rockport Art Association & Museum. He is an elected AIS Board Member. Mark has

    written over 50 published compositions that include performances by Grammy Award
