Impeccable Taste: Seventeenth-Century Ornamental Design in Print
June 11-December 22, 2019

Designs for the ornamentation of fabrics, furniture, jewelry, armor, and a variety of other materials are of fundamental importance to the history of Western printmaking. The seventeenth century saw a remarkable flourishing of printed designs, which disseminated elite tastes and sophisticated craftsmanship to wider audiences than ever before. This exhibition will feature an array of printed designs for lavishly embellished architectural elements, woodworking and carpentry, jewelry, and other personal luxury objects.

Missouri Nostalgia: Works on Paper from the Scruggs-Vandervoort-Barney Collection
May 21 – October 27, 2019

The Scruggs-Vandervoort-Barney Collection comprises almost one hundred paintings and drawings capturing rural and urban life in Missouri in 1946 and 1947. Also called the Heart of the Nation Collection, these works survive as notable records of landscapes, cityscapes, ways of life, and folk traditions from across the state. This exhibition will present a selection of watercolors and drawings from this collection.

Objectified: The Female Form and the Male Gaze
February 15-July 21, 2019

This exhibition will ask critical questions about portrayals of the female nude, a prevalent subject throughout European and American art. Do justifications of representing the nude as natural, beautiful, and traditional hold up to critical awareness of the subjugation of women and objectification of their bodies throughout history? How do we reconcile the heroic personae of artists with their mistreatment and abuse of women in their lives, whether models, muses, lovers, or wives?
