Featuring a group of young up-and-coming artists in a free exhibition that pushes contemporary ideas through conceptually contrived works.
During its more than four decade span, Associated American Artists created an art series with hundreds of prints by dozens of prominent artist members. Collectors and donors who contributed to this special collection include Ms. Susan Wayne and Miss Leslie Wayne Loftus, Mr. Daniel Summers, Mr. & Mrs. Robert Goldberg, Ms. Helen Bosart Morgan, Mrs. Victoria Cooper and others. These generously donated Associated American Artists prints are now an integral part of the Springfield Museum of Art’s permanent collection and we are pleased to present them to you in this exhibition.
Columbus, Ohio-based artist Christopher Burk creates meticulously painted landscapes of oft-overlooked urban environments. His works impart an engaging atmospheric quality, and encourage the viewer to look at the geography around them in a new way. This exhibition features his newest series, Stillness: Nocturnes, as well as selected paintings and drawings from past bodies of works.
Opening Reception: 5:30-7pm, Saturday, Jan 20
This exhibition features more than twenty works added to our permanent collection over the last year, ranging greatly in medium, time period, and subject matter, and offering insight into the collection practices of museums.
