- St. Joan, Pops Peterson, after Norman Rockwell’s Girl at the Mirror
Maurice "Pops" Peterson is an artist, performer, and writer whose photos and prints have been featured in solo exhibitions at Sohn Fine Arts and Lauren Clark Fine Art, as well as group exhibitions in the Berkshires and New York City. (He is also owner, with his husband Mark Johnson, of Seven Salon Spa in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.) He is best known for his work on the theme of Civil Rights and freedom, which has received extensive media coverage. In 2015, he debuted his Reinventing Rockwell series, which reimagines the art of Norman Rockwell to reflect the realities and diversity of contemporary America.
On February 3, Peterson will talk about his Reinventing Rockwell paintings at the Spencertown Academy Arts Center as part of its Conversations with Neighbors series. Admission is $20 general admission, $15 for members, and $10 students. Spencertownacademy.org.
