McAllister: Salem and the art colony


And there was one final, nostalgic touch — the inclusion of Mary Mason Brooks, who, after studying in Rome and Paris, had carved out a fine art career for herself in Boston, and Charlie Whitney, a respected educator and longtime director of art at the Salem State Normal School. They, like Frank Benson and Philip Little, had “traveled” a long way since their Studio Block days a half-century earlier. It was fitting that their final show together should be held in the very shadow of the building where they had first come together.
