Charles Flint Fine Art & Antiques Gallery opened in 1978, with a focus on antiques and American folk art. In the ensuing years the gallery grew to include Shaker furniture (becoming one of the leading Shaker furniture dealers in the country) and American and European 18th and 19th Century paintings, featuring works by Norman Rockwell. Through Charles Flint’s many years of close collaboration with Norman Rockwell Museum, he built a unique expertise in Rockwell and his art, so that he is now a regular authenticator for the Museum. Recently, Flint has expanded the gallery into 20th Century and Latin American art. Learn more at www.charlesflint.com.

Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs
On view through October 26, 2015
Over the past 37 years, readers of The New Yorker have been enjoying cartoonist Roz Chast’s signature style and wit. From her timelessly funny cartoons and lively children’s picture books, to her intricately painted pysanka eggs and hand-made textiles, Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs will feature works representing the breadth of Chast’s entire artistic career. A highlight of the exhibition will be nearly 120 original drawings and objects from her award-winning memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? which tackles the sensitive subject of caring for the elderly, with thoughtful insight and humor.
