Artists in America at the Nassau County Museum of Art

February 8, 2013 by  

A special collection of art pieces has made its way to the Nassau County Museum of Art for a limited time.

The exhibit is called ‘Artists in America’ and features 79 pieces of art, some of which date as far back as the early 1700s. The pieces are primarily different types of paintings, such as landscapes, still life, portraits, and modernist abstractions, but there are other forms of media on display, such as photography and collage.

Artists from every major era of American art are represented in the exhibit. Some of these include John Singleton Copley, John Singer Sargent, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, and Sol Lewitt. All of the pieces are selected from the permanent collection on display at the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut.

The exhibition has been on display since late November, but it only remains on display until February 24. Given that it is rare to see an art display like this on Long Island, residents of nearby areas should take advantage and visit while it is still open. Admission to the Nassau County Museum of Art ranges from $4 to $10 depending on whether the visitor is a member or not.

The museum may hire print companies to create flyers to remind Long Islanders that this exhibit remains on display for only a few more short weeks. The museum is located in Roslyn Harbor, New York, and promotion in nearby areas like Old Westbury, Mineola, and Port Washington could draw in more attendance for them in the exhibit’s final weeks.
