Through the works of Edward Boulton, Wyatt Eaton, Albert Reinhart, Alice Doughton, Julius Golz, Charles Freeman, Ida and Clara Stroud, John F. Peto, Mildred Miller, Thomas Anshutz, Hugh Campbell, and Carrie Sanborn (to name a few), this exhibition illustrates the history of artists who lived, worked and drew inspiration from New Jersey’s famous shores. The show also examines the prolific artist colonies that flourished here, producing an output that rivaled better-known artist enclaves up and down the east coast.
