Artistic Vision: Redefining the Picture Frame

November 5, 2015 - November 29, 2015

| Free

A frame conservator, frame historian, and master gilder, exhibit curator William Adair began his career in frame conservation at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery. His special exhibit at The Art League Gallery features a collection of frames created by 19th and early 20th century artists and examines their increasing interest in how their art would be framed and displayed. Discover how artists looked to each other and to a number of art movements to develop designs that would become extensions of the artwork. This exhibit is a gift to our community. It is free and all are encouraged to attend.
