Place to Place: Recent Gifts of American Drawings and Watercolors, 1900-1950
September 14 - December 12, 2021
Special Exhibitions Gallery, First Floor
Place to Place offers a jaunt around America in the first half of the twentieth century. From New York to New Mexico to New Orleans, a range of sites in several different media are gathered to explore notions of place. International locales represented include Belgium, England, France, Germany, and Morocco. Conceived at a time when many of us were stuck in place because of the pandemic, this exhibition presents disparate geographical locales depicted by a variety of peripatetic artists, including Colin Campbell Cooper, Marsden Hartley, Charles Webster Hawthorne, Robert Henri, Irene Rice Pereira, and Alice Schille. The twenty-three drawings and watercolors featured have been given to the museum in the last few years and will be on view for the first time.
Organized by the Palmer Museum of Art.
