Rockwell Kent: Prints from the Ralf C. Nemec Collection & Paintings from North Country Collections
On view April 8 through July 22, 2018 Member Opening: Saturday, April 7, at 2 pm
Complementary exhibitions celebrate Rockwell Kent (1882 – 1971), the American painter, printer, and illustrator, who settled in the Adirondacks in 1928. He painted many of his works in his Adirondack studio based on drawings, sketches, and notes taken during extensive travels to Greenland, Alaska, Ireland, and other extreme locations. Curator Caroline Welsh has drawn together paintings from North Country collections, some seldom seen publicly.
Organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA.
