Making an Impression

Exhibit discovers European-style snootiness in our own backyard.


Who knew Impressionism was so popular in these here parts of the country? The Massillon Museum’s Midwestern Visions of Impressionism documents nearly three dozen painters from Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, who did most of their work during the first quarter of the 20th century. The exhibit -- which gathers more than 70 paintings by artists like George Ames Aldrich, Maude Eggemeyer, and Theodore Clement Steele -- is an eye-opening look at a genre often associated with stuffy Europeans, not corn-fed rural folk. The pastoral pieces depict serene, almost aristocratic settings, capturing spacious skies and the flourishing fields where farmers once labored.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 2-5 p.m. Starts: Aug. 3. Continues through Aug. 19
