    In the Galleries:

    American Master Prints from the Collection of Dorrance Kelly
    March 3 – May 26, 2013
    Unlike the cozy domestic scenes and pastoral country views of Currier and Ives, the artists of the Ashcan School of painting in New York of the early 1900s were committed to vernacular themes with subjects that were often critically derided for their frankness and vulgarity. Ashcan artists John Sloan, George Bellows and Reginald Marsh produced scenes of urban life and portraits of the urban poor that were exuberant and gritty. Another type of realism was one that had its antecedents in European art. Edward Hopper’s etchings of the vast and lonely American scene consciously evoked Rembrandt. During the years of the Great Depression regional art began to dominate. Thomas Hart Benton’s American Scene extolled the virtues of rural life A devoted realist, Martin Lewis recorded the “homely details of common everyday life.” His atmospheric and moody scenes depict scenes of New York City and rural Connecticut. This exhibition presents the work of eight master printers. Though stylistically diverse and motivated by differing sensibilities, all are master artists who showed technical finesse and humanistic sensitivity.

     

    Everything/Nothing: Paintings by Eric Forstmann
    March 3 – May 26, 2013
    Contemporary realist painter, Eric Forstmann moves effortlessly between still life painting and depictions of the landscape. Forstmann is known for his arrangements of fruit and objects on table-tops and on shelves. He also works larger, creating room-size compositions from table and chair groupings to 16’ foot assemblages of cast off furniture, dump finds and odd and ends. Art reflects its time and responds to its place and Forstmann makes numerous references to contemporary life in his scenes of both the urban and rural landscape. In each he strives for accuracy of time and place; paintings are sometimes titled with the hour and location. Everything/Nothing is the title of one of Forstmann’s trompe l’oeil works. Its subject is a rumpled and creased irregularly-shaped piece of brown paper that is suspended on a blank wall by a push-pin at each top corner. The title refers to the mysterious questions, What is Everything? and What is Nothing?
