The Life and Times of Alice Stallknecht

Free Screening - Documentary

Runtime: 15 minutes

Alice Stallknecht painted Chatham.

Townspeople, birds, boats, and weathervanes were her inspiration. Fiercely independent, Stallknecht created a body of work that is unique but also earned her place amongst American Regionalist Painters. American Regionalism became one of the dominant national art movements in the 1930s. American Regionalism strived to represent the conditions of working class Americans.

This documentary was produced by the Chatham Historical Society under the direction of film producer Fred Monthei. It focuses on the life of Alice and her turbulent and dedicated marriage to Carol Wight.

Alice Stallknecht’s dynamic mural paintings, created in the 30s and 40s, are one of the highlights of the Atwood Museum. Three murals are proudly displayed in the Mural Barn located at the Museum, home of the Chatham Historical Society.
