The Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association’s traveling exhibit at the Great Falls Discovery Center in Turners Falls explores connections between the Connecticut River Valley’s agricultural landscape and generations of artists in the Fuller family of Deerfield. Imaginary art studios represent three generations—George Fuller’s painting studio, Arthur Negus Fuller’s printmaking studio, and Elizabeth Brooks Fuller’s en plein air (outdoor) studio. Enjoy reproductions of oil paintings, prints, and watercolors from Memorial Hall Museum’s Fuller collection; learn how farming influenced these artists’ work; and create your own art inspired by our local landscape. Designed to engage all ages, with English and Spanish translations.
