A new exhibition at the Shelburne Museum focuses on the American Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt.  "Mary Cassatt:  Friends and Family" features more than 60 works by Cassatt and her contemporary Edgar Degas.  Cassatt is perhaps best known for her mother-and-child portraits, many of which are loan from private collections and other museums. 

VPR's Neal Charnoff visited the Shelburne Museum and talked with museum director Stephan Jost about the exhibit.
