For the 150 years since the birth of Edmund C. Tarbell, one of the founders of the Boston School method of painting, little has been made of the artist’s Groton roots. But that has recently been changing, thanks to the initiative of the artist’s grandson Daniel Tarbell.
Several years ago, the younger Tarbell presented the Groton Public Library with a selection of his grandfather’s paintings, drawings, and sketches. The result: a current Tarbell exhibition in the library’s Owen Smith Shuman Gallery.
The work will remain on exhibit until November 9, and the library has planned additional events in conjunction with the show, including an upcoming talk by local artist Mary Minifie, to be held November 3. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
