Molly Peacock: FLOWER DIARY @ Westport Library

October 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Hear how Mary Hiester Reid fought to be a professional artist during the 19th century when Molly Peacock discusses Flower Diary: In Which Mary Hiester Reid Paints, Travels, Marries & Opens a Door with local artist Dale Najarian.

After she married fellow artist George Reid, Mary returned with him to his home country of Canada. There she set about creating over 300 stunning still life and landscape paintings, inhabiting a rich, if sometimes difficult, marriage, coping with a younger rival, exhibiting internationally, and becoming well-reviewed. She studied in Paris, traveled in Spain, and divided her time between Canada and the United States where she lived among America’s Arts and Crafts movement titans. She left slender written records; rather, her art became her diary and Flower Diary unfolds with an artwork for each episode of her life.
