American Moderns Exhibit at Reynolda House
Reynolda House Museum of American Art opens “American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell” Friday, Feb. 7 through Sunday, May 4.
Reynolda House is one of the nation’s premier American art museums, with masterpieces by Mary Cassatt, Frederic Church, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe and Gilbert Stuart among its permanent collection.
The “American Moderns” exhibition features work by the most well-known artists from 1910-1960 including Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Grandma Moses, Joseph Stella (pictured left with credits below), Elie Nadelman and Norman Rockwell. The 53 paintings and four sculptures in the exhibition range widely in subject matter and style.
“American Moderns” is organized in interpretive groupings by themes such as the city, the body, landscape, still life, and Americana, all of which explore the myriad ways in which American artists engaged with modernity.
As an added bonus, Reynolda House is also presenting a complementary exhibition, "Reynolda Moderns," showcasing some of the museum's permanent collections from the same artists during the same time period. Reynolda House is one of only two venues in the Southeast to host the "American Moderns" exhibition. “Reynolda Moderns” is on display until Sunday, June 1 and features an online component available at reynoldahouse.org.
Admission is $14/adults. Students, children and members of the museum are admitted free. Group tours of eight or more adults scheduled in advance receive a discounted admission rate of $12 per person. To schedule a group tour please contact Kathleen Hutton, Director of Education, at 336.758.5394.
