American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood CollectionSeptember 19, 2020 - March 14, 2021
September 19, 2020 - March 14, 2021 Drawn from the collection of the Huntington Museum of Art, American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection features 41 elegant American paintings, originally from the private collection of Arthur Dayton and Ruth Woods Dayton. This exhibition showcases work from a transitional time in American art, approximately the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when artists abandoned the rigors of academic styles and subjects.
With cold weather returning, we are cancelling 2nd Thursday in the Paradigm Gallery for November and December to avoid creating large groups of people indoors. Please enjoy free admission at FWMoA every Thursday from 5-8pm to enjoy our current exhibitions.
Almost two thirds of the FWMoA permanent collection are prints and other works on paper. The processes and techniques of printmaking are vast and can be highly technical, making this medium both fascinating and mystifying for many. During Print Room talks we will examine examples of printmaking techniques up-close and learn about artists from the permanent collection, who chose to work with these different printmaking processes. Print Room Talks are led by Curator of Prints and Drawings Sachi Yanari-Rizzo. Jaune Quick-to-See Smith has had an accomplished career as an artist, activist, curator, and mentor. The artist creates thought provoking works by sourcing history and Native American culture and combining text with abstract renderings.
Join us each month to experience art from the comfort of your home or classroom! Programs will alternate between a tour of a current exhibition and a theme-based Gallery on Wheels collection. FWMoA educators will engage students in close looking strategies and activities to deepen learning and build skills across subjects. Programs last about 30 minutes with optional art making activities to extend the experience.
