Boston painter Thomas R. Dunlay will lead a weeklong workshop beginning Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Wooster Farm, summer home and studio of legendary painter Frank W. Benson. Painters from all over the country will be assembling for the workshop, which has as its theme the working methods of Benson and the Boston School of Painters.

Dunlay is one of a handful of painters living today who studied with Boston painter R. H. Ives Gammell, who was a student of Benson at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 1911. For more information about Dunlay, visit
