Enjoy an autumn afternoon of art and antiques, and see if you can identify the locations of the Boston streets from 100 years ago. Visitors can also enter to win a drawing for a Fabled Antiques gift card; the winner will be drawn on Nov. 1.

The spotlight artist for “City and Shore: Views of Boston and Coastal Massachusetts” is Arthur Clifton Goodwin, an American Impressionist painter best known for his en plein air Boston street and waterfront scenes. Born in Portsmouth, N.H., Goodwin lived and worked most of his life in Massachusetts and New York. He was a member of the Guild of Boston Artists and exhibited at the St. Botolph Club, Vose Galleries, Copley Gallery and more. His work was also on view beyond Boston, including noted institutions such as the National Academy of Design, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Goodwin’s works are in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy; and the Fogg Museum at Harvard University.

“City and Shore: Views of Boston and Coastal Massachusetts” exhibit is now on view at Fabled Antiques and continues throughout the fall.
