Maxfield Parrish, Machinist, Artisan, Artist
Thursday, July 19
For a time in the 1920s, Maxfield Parrish was the most recognized and reproduced working artist in America. For all of his working life, Parrish, who lived and worked in Plainfield, NH, maintained a fully equipped machine shop on the lower level of his studio. The casual viewer may think that the enchanting, nostalgic appeal of his art sprang from his imagination only. Not so – his work belies a strong connection between artistic fantasy and technical reality. Join Ann Lawless, Executive Director of the American Precision Museum, for a look at the many facets of Parrish’s career. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission.
