AAM @ 60: The Diamond Exhibition

Part II: Through October 14

Free Docent Tours: Wednesdays at 11 a.m., meet at Front Desk

In 1958, the Academy Art Museum opened its doors to the public as the Academy of the Arts. In 2018, the accredited Museum invites all audiences to celebrate its 60th anniversary, honoring the past and celebrating the future. Program highlights include a special two-part Diamond Exhibition, representing the creative genius of artists from Europe and North America, spanning from the seventeenth century to the present. Anke Van Wagenberg, Chief Curator, has selected artworks from among the over 1,400 works in the Permanent Collection for two sequential exhibitions. The Diamond Exhibition will showcase a representative range of works including prints from Rembrandt and Goya to Whistler and Picasso, and selections of AAM’s holdings in other media including painting, photography and sculpture.

Reflections: Natural and Imagined

Through August 19

Free Docent Tours: Wednesdays at 11 a.m., meet at Front Desk

The St. Michaels Art League (SMAL) presents a juried selection of work in various mediums inspired by the theme “Reflections.” Interpretations vary broadly from literal to figurative and may include reflections on nature, on objects, on buildings, and reflections on thought and expression, to name a few. Carla Massoni, owner of Massoni Gallery in downtown Chestertown, will serve as this year’s juror.
