Academy Art Museum Announces September Events

The following Academy Art Museum exhibitions are sponsored by Talbot Arts, the Maryland State Arts Council, and the Star Democrat. Open daily, Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.

Close Introspection: From Picasso to Kusama

Through October 4, 2021

First Friday Reception: August 6, 2021, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Close Introspection: From Picasso to Kusama features works by critically acclaimed mid-to-late 20th century and contemporary artists, including Helen Frankenthaler, Judy Pfaff, Pablo Picasso, Martin Puryear, and Howardena Pindell, and explores the meditative dimension of the creative process. The works in the exhibition reveal the artistic predicament of deeply considering the nature and form of a chosen subject and re-articulating the subject in a transformative way. Much like the artist, the viewer is invited to first observe closely, then consider the wider context of each work, following the formal and stylistic threads the artists offer in their respective visual languages. Close Introspection: From Picasso to Kusama offers comparisons between works from the major movements of the 20th century, from European Abstraction and Abstract Expressionism to Feminist Art.

Recent Photography Acquisitions and Highlights from the Permanent Collection presents new and exciting additions of photographic works to the Museum’s Permanent Collection, alongside existing masterworks from the vault. Including prints by artists Ansel Adams, Aaron Siskind, Berenice Abbott, William Eggleston, John Gossage, Lisette Model, Eadweard Muybridge, Robert

Rauschenberg and others, the selection offers an introduction to creative, historical

and methodological motifs in 19th and 20th-century photography, celebrating the

artists’ diverse thematic inquiries through the medium and their technical virtuosity.
