A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

On exhibition March 20, 2019 - April 27, 2019

For more than thirty years, Fred Rogers captivated and delighted children as the host of the beloved television series, “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood.” Mister Rogers became a cultural touchstone, known to generations of PBS viewers for his calm, patient and inclusive attitude toward children and the community at large. We were inspired by the recent release of Morgan Neville’s documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” to spotlight scenes of daily neighborhood activity from our inventory. The locales included in this exhibition vary widely, yet they share narrative undertones of ordinary people coexisting in a shared space, each performing small acts of uncomplicated compassion. We are pleased to present over 30 neighborhood and community scenes as part of our newest exhibition, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

Indefatigable Spirit: The American Work Ethic

On exhibition January 12, 2019 - March 2, 2019

We are pleased to announce our newest online exhibition, Indefatigable Spirit: The American Work Ethic. We hope that this selection from our inventory will be motivating and reinvigorating for the New Year. Here, we have chosen to focus on the American worker, including subjects from fishermen managing the day’s haul, to farmers toiling in their fields, to carpenters and to shoe-shiners. Each painting illustrates the hard work and can-do attitude on which Americans have prided themselves on for generations, capturing moments of daily life from different eras in American history. The people, and the environments in which they labor, illustrate the march of progress and encapsulate the American will to succeed. We hope this year brings you success and luck in all of your ventures, and hope you find some small amount of inspiration in this collection of American works of art.

Human/Nature

On exhibition November 17, 2018 - January 26, 2019

We are pleased to announce our major fall exhibition Human/Nature, featuring over 50 paintings by notable American artists. In this exhibition we’ve chosen to focus on artists’ experiences of the natural world versus the human world and ascertain the lines where these two worlds converge. Each painting exists along a spectrum between the two poles and in deciding where these paintings fall, we’ve relied primarily on the power dynamic within the painting. To what extent are the human inhabitants of each painting in command of their surroundings? On one end are wild, uninhabited landscapes. As we move toward the human side of the spectrum, there is little or no reference to nature.
