Looking at the Collection: Nature’s Realm
August 19 – November 4, 2018

The Huntsville Museum of Art is pleased to showcase a selection of artworks from its own permanent collection that explores aspects of the natural world we all inhabit. Some works are gifts from generous donors, while others were added through purchase. The Museum’s collection currently totals over 3,500 works of art, providing a rich re-source for its curators to develop exhibitions such as these.

Nature’s Realm focuses on contemporary works of art from the collection whose sub-jects reference the landscape and its flora and fauna. The exhibition highlights a range of artistic “takes” on the theme, offering the viewer the opportunity to compare and contrast differing approaches to composition, subject matter and storytelling. On view are paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and three-dimensional works in glass, metal, wood and ceramic. Works range stylistically from the hard-edged realism of Nall Hollis’ deconstructed flowers; to the softly color-drenched landscapes of George Cress; to the sheer abstraction of Pat Musick‘s mixed-media sculptures.

With this exhibition we salute the depth and diversity of the Museum’s permanent col-lection, and thank those artists whose works have enriched the cultural life of our region.

American Impressionist Art from the Thomas Clark Collection
Through September 23, 2018
Huth, Boeing, Salmon and Haws Galleries

One of the finest private holdings of American impressionist art in upstate New York, the Thomas Clark Collection is a testament to the enduring legacy of Impressionist painting in American art. The collection emphasizes representative examples from the last great generation of artists who emerged both during and in the aftermath of the American Impressionist movement (1880-1920). These artists were the students and sketching partners of the seminal figures in the development of Impressionism in America, such as William Merritt Chase, Willard L. Metcalf, John Henry Twachtman, and Robert Henri. The American Impressionists were primarily concerned with capturing the effects of light, color, and atmosphere achieved by painting directly from nature — out-of-doors — rather than in the studio. This generation of landscape painters flourished in areas such as Old Lyme, Connecticut; Cape Ann, Massachusetts; New Hope, Pennsylvania; and Woodstock, New York; as well as areas of Vermont and California. The exhibition includes about 70 works by artists such as Arthur C. Goodwin, Emile Gruppé, George Loftus Noyes, and Harry Aiken. Organized by HMA

Encounters: Ted Whisenhunt
July 15 – September 23, 2018
Huth, Boeing, Salmon and Haws Galleries

The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on the folk-infused mixed media works of this North Georgia artist. Rural Appalachia and life in the early 20th century is the inspiration for his recent body of work. The mixed media sculptures also explore movement and viewer interaction by incorporating hand cranked mechanical systems that bring the pieces to life. A native of Alabama, Whisenhunt holds a BA from Birmingham-Southern College with an MA from Florida State University. He was the Associate Professor of Art and Chair of Fine and Performing Arts at Judson College from 1998 – 2009 before moving to Young Harris College in Georgia where he currently holds the same title. In his spare time Whisenhunt plays with the old time string band Cornbread & The Butterbeans. Organized by HMA.
