Fenimore re-opens with six new exhibitions

(Continued)

June 6 to Aug. 24, “Winslow Homer: The Nature and Rhythm of Life, from the Arkell Museum at Canajoharie.” The exhibit will feature more than 20 rarely seen works by famed landscape painter Winslow Homer collected by Bartlett Arkell, the founder and first president of the Arkell Museum at Canajoharie. Now housed at The Arkell, this marks the first time the collection of Homer paintings will be displayed as a complete collection. The exhibition was organized by the Arkell Museum at Canajoharie.

June 21 to Sept. 21, “Madame Butterfly’s World: Woodblock Prints of a Changing Japan.” Inspired by Glimmerglass Festival’s 2014 production of “Madame Butterfly,” this exhibition of Japanese woodblock prints highlights the changing world in which Butterfly lived. The collection features prints that represent “traditional” Japan, as well as those showing the influence of Western culture.

Sept. 18 to Dec. 31, “Dorothea Lange’s America.” Lange’s images of migrant workers, suffering families, and tortured landscapes have seared the imagery of the Depression into America’s consciousness, the release said. Her most celebrated photographs of that era – Migrant Mother, White Angel Breadline, and Migratory Cotton Picker – have become icons in American cultural history.

Sept.18 to Dec. 31, “Folk Art and American Modernism.” The exhibit will peer into the world of the first collectors of American folk art during the period of Modernism and explores the connection between the collectors and the pieces they collected. Viewers will see how these insightful pioneers influenced the future of American art purely by the items they gathered and revered.
