(1886 – 1972)
Aldro Hibbard was an Impressionist landscape painter born in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Hibbard grew up in Dorchester and Boston and spent many summers in Cape Cod. Not only an artist, Hibbard was also a professional baseball player.
In the early 1920s, he became a summer resident of Cape Ann and wintered in Jamaica, Vermont in the West River Valley. His paintings focused on oxen pulling wagons, covered bridges, and sugar houses, in rural winter scenes. Light and shadow were his priority in his paintings, and can be seen in his depictions of the New England coastlines, Vermont landscapes, and the Canadian Rockies. From 1915, he was also an instructor in the Art Department of Boston University. He produced artwork in the Fenway Studios in Boston, from 1927-1929.
