MORE IMAGES FROM THIS SHOW

Windows depicted in art serve various practical and metaphorical functions. Whether casting light that illuminates a scene or providing formal structure to a composition, windows signify a boundary between private and public spaces. Allowing, or preventing, the viewer visual access, windows mediate between interior and exterior, providing connections or maintaining separation. Drawn from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, Looking Out, Looking In explores windows in paintings and photographs of the 19th and 20th centuries by artists such as Berenice Abbott, Don Eddy, Fairfield Porter, Emilio Sanchez, John Sloan, and Helen Miranda Wilson, and others.

MORE IMAGES FROM THIS SHOW

Synapses: Threads for Thought presents over two dozen works from the Museum’s collection as a meandering thread of diverse connections.  Paintings, prints, and photographs executed in a range of styles and with varying subjects are arranged so that each work links to those that precede and follow it, but in different ways.  The revealed associations in concept and formal concerns enlarge the viewer’s interpretation and highlight the interconnectedness of visual experience.   With works ranging from a late-16th century Annunciation and George Grosz’s Eclipse of the Sun to abstractions by Arthur Dove and photographs by Larry Fink, this exhibition embraces the breadth of the Museum’s collection.
