American Wonder: Folk Art from the Collection
October 1, 2014 - December 21, 2014
American Wonder: American Folk Art from the Collection captures our burgeoning nation during a time of enormous change, from the Declaration of Independence in 1776 to the onset of the Civil War in 1861. The exhibition includes approximately fifty portraits, landscapes, commemorative mourning pictures, weather vanes, and decorative sculptures from the BAM/PFA collection.
Joseph Holtzman / MATRIX 256
October 17, 2014 - December 21, 2014
Joseph Holtzman’s paintings on marble achieve remarkable chromatic and tonal effects by exploiting the transparency of oil paint and the unusual capacity of the stone surface to absorb and reflect light. The themes and motifs of these highly personal paintings are drawn from Holtzman’s interest in historical painting and eighteenth- and nineteenth-century decorative arts, and often depict family and friends, cultural personalities, historical figures, and literary characters.
