Romancing Northampton, a collection by Emily Stedman ’69, is being featured at Historic Northampton Museum. The image above is a painting from her collection.
“Romancing Northampton explores our longing for a sense of continuity with our past.  New York City artist Emily Stedman has created a series of watercolor paintings based on archival photos from Historic Northampton’s collection. Through the use of transparent watercolor on paper, Stedman interprets these photos and creates lively, optimistic, and colorful visual stories. Looking at the past gives a much-needed context, direction and perspective on who we are and where we come from. In our dreams we are momentarily on our bicycles, wherever we grew up, and doing whatever it was we loved doing. In our minds’ eye, Grandma sat and knitted while kittens played with her yarn, kids wandered and explored outside for hours and chores were a part of life.”
You can read more about Emily’s work on her website: http://www.emilystedman.com/
