From June 7, 2012 to September 2, 2012 – Norton Museum of Art
Edward Gorey (1925-2000) is among the rare breed of artist whose work is as much beloved by children as it is by adults. His stories and illustrations carry an Edwardian sophistication while still able to impart the whimsy of an invented world that was all his own. The exhibition features more than 170 works by the master artist and author drawn from The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust. The exhibition includes selections from The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Unstrung Harp, The Doubtful Guest, The Gilded Bat and other well-known publications. Featured are original pen-and-ink illustrations, preparatory sketches, unpublished drawings, and ephemera.
Until September 2, 2012 – Norton Museum
American Masters at the Norton:
Three exceptional canvases by Joan Mitchell and Clyfford Still, each a master of late twentieth century American painting, will be on view at the Museum from March 22 through the Fall of 2012. Still (1904 – 1980) is credited with laying the groundwork for the Abstract Expressionism movement, which is exemplified by a variety of styles from the pour paintings of Jackson Pollock to Mark Rothko’s fields of luminescent color. Until the opening of the Clyfford Still Museum last year, there were few public insitutions where his sublime, remarkable canvases could be seen. On view at the Museum are 1949-A-No.1 (1949) and PH-1033 (1976). Although younger than Still, Mitchell found her voice (as did many other artists of succeeding generations) within the style of gestural abstraction. While the very action of the manner of painting was powerful, Mitchell (and her peers) reinterpreted it, using paint directly from tubes, applying it with her hands and conceiving of compositions that worked from the center out, rather ethan over the entire surface of her canvas. These characteristics are seen in the untitled canvas by Mitchell (circa 1960) also on view.
