Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style

Tuesday, March 27, 2018
Bryan Memorial Gallery
Peabody Essex Museum Tour

Georgia O'Keeffe: Art, Image, Style, the first exhibition to explore the art, image and personal style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefully designed garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling. For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona, defied labels and carved out a truly progressive, independent life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy — compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation, and restrained color palettes — continues to capture the popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers of our day.

The Russians - Held Over

Russian Artists and Friends Held-Over! Showing in May and June in the middle gallery.

Jeffersonville, Vermont welcomed a group of Russian plein air artists for two weeks in March (9 – 23.) The Russian artists were joined by dozens of American painters, painting en plein air throughout the two weeks of their visit in the US.

Many of these painters know each other, as the visit is privately organized, part of an exchange that has taken place over the past few years, of Russians coming to iconic New England locations to paint, and Americans going to paint with them each of the last few alternate years.  This is the first time that Vermont has been their destination, and appropriately Jeffersonville has been selected, as it has been a mecca for plein air artists for over 100 years.

Their stay culminated in a one day installation of their paintings at Bryan Memorial Gallery. While they have all left for home, wwe are pleased to have held on to 20 paintings by our new Russian friends, and a selection of paintings by the other artists who joined them. These will be displayed in May and June in the middle room and legacy galleries in May and June.

Chagall In Montreal - VPR Commentary

Listen to Mickey Meyers describe the wonderful exhibit Chagall in Montreal at the Musee des Beaux Arts . Her reflections on the artist and the recent trip with the Bryan Memorial Gallery shed light on both the exhibit and the artist.

Marc Chagall’s career spanned almost 100 years and 3 continents. Considered the quintessential Jewish artist of the 20th century, Chagall was a master colorist, dreamer and story teller. And for a few more days – through June 11 – three hundred and forty of his works can be seen at the Musee des Beaux Arts in Montreal.

You can read her full commentary and listen to it on VPR at this link
