Time in Art - December 16, 2017 - April 29, 2018

Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute

 

From the MWPAI website:

 

Museum visitors are invited to breeze through the months of winter by contemplating Time in Art, on view December 16 through April 29, 2018. This exhibition features a variety of fine and decorative arts that interpret time and its passing through themes such as hours of the day and seasons of the year; early and late works by a single artist; works inspired by or copied from artistic forebears; the cycle of life; and memory. Included are paintings and works on paper by William Palmer, James Penney, and Easton Pribble – artists with strong ties to Central New York – as well as by the more internationally recognized name of Pablo Picasso. Time in Art features two 19th-century brooches made with human hair that may have been memento mori for lost loved ones, and showcases recent acquisitions by Barry Anderseon, Robert Kipniss, and Agnes Murray, all gifts to the Museum of Art. Take the time to view these and other works of art from the collection. It is a rare opportunity to enjoy old favorites and discover new ones.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic” Stephen King, “On Writing”

Reading and writing in all variety are the featured subjects in this exhibition of fine and decorative arts dating from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Reading is a good diversion for the person who must sit quietly under the artist’s scrutiny, and literature has inspired visual artists in the Western tradition since ancient times. “Portable Magic” includes paintings, sculpture, works on paper, writing desks and implements, by artists such as Milton Avery, Edwin Dickinson, Lesley Dill, Elaine Reichek, Stella Waitzkin, Kara Walker, and James McNeill Whistler.
