Warner Collection makes stop in Pittsburgh
February 20, 2014 by Lisa
A showcase called ‘An American Odyssey: the Warner Collection of American Paintings’ will be on display in Pittsburgh from March until May. This traveling exhibition features selected works of art from the Warner Foundation in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The artworks are from the late 1800s until the early 20th Century. They include portraits, still lifes, and landscapes from artists such as Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Frederic E. Church, Thomas Cole, and James Peale. It includes several Impressionists and those from the Hudson River School.
The exhibit has visited several cities in the United States and will continue to travel after the Pittsburgh show closes. Since it is only showing in Pittsburgh for three months, organizers of the exhibition will no doubt be heavily marketing it throughout the area. It is possible that they may hire local brochure printers to help design and print a booklet to advertise the event and provide colorful pictures of some of the art work that the public can see as well as all of the information they need in order to attend the show.
The collection is showing at the Frick Art and Historical Center from March 1 until May 25, and admission to the gallery is free. To find out more about this and other upcoming exhibitions, contact Greg Langel at 412-342-4075.
