Academy Art Museum Announces July Events

July 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

EXHIBITIONS

The Academy Art Museum’s exhibitions are generously supported by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Talbot County Arts Council and the Star-Democrat.

Edvard Munch: Color in Context

Prints from the National Gallery of Art

July 28–October 14

Reception: Friday, July 27 • 5:30–7 p.m.

Free Docent Tours: Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

In the second half of the 19th century, advances in physics, electromagnetic radiation theory, and the optical sciences provoked new thought about the physical as well as the spiritual world. Aspects of that thought are revealed in “Edvard Munch: Color in Context,” an exhibition of 10 prints on loan from the National Gallery of Art, that considers the choice, combinations, and meaning of color in light of spiritualist principles. Informed by both popular manuals that explained the science of color and theosophical writings on the visual and physical power of color, Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863–1944) created works that are not just strikingly personal but charged with specific associations.

AAM @ 60: The Diamond Exhibition

Part II: July 28–October 14

Reception: Friday, July 27 • 5:30-7 p.m.

Free Docent Tours: Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

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 17th 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

July 21-August 19

Free Docent Tours: Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

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.
