  1. Creating an American Identity

    October 17, 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Musgrave Wing Galleries

    The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains over 10,000 objects in nearly all media. The works selected for this exhibition were chosen for their ability to reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans. There is no singular or fixed American identity. American art and history is shaped by multiple perspectives, stories, and experiences, and as such, this exhibition aims to present a multiplicity of views within the wider context of historical moments. The exhibition includes 75 works from as wide an array of artistic voices as possible within our current collection, including even more works by women, people of color, Native Americans, and LGBTQ+ communities. This exhibit includes major work by George Caleb Bingham, Asher B. Durand, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alison Saar, among many others.

    This exhibition features work in the series Varie Figure, or Various Figures (1621-1628) by the pre-eminent French printmaker Jacques Callot.

The series contains 16 works pulled from the Museum's permanent collection. Most works feature double images of the same figure. It has been suggested that this series served as a drawing book or model for learning rapid, freehand drawing.

These comics reprised stories already featured in "Woman’s Home Companion." Through the syndicate, the comic was published in newspapers across the country including "The Detroit Sunday News," "Los Angeles Sunday Tribune," "Times-Picayune," and the "San Francisco Chronicle." This exhibition features 15 hand-colored proofs from the Sunday comic series, as well as an additional three proofs from the more modern format Kewpie comic strip, published in the 1930s. These works are pulled from the Museum’s permanent collection and were gifted to the Museum in 2018 by the O’Neill Family Foundation.

  4. Shape, Form, and Color

    October 17, 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Armstrong Gallery

    There are seven essential elements of art which outline the fundamental components of an artwork. These include color, line, shape, form, value, texture, and space. We often judge an artwork by how effectively the artist uses these elements. This exhibit will explore three of the seven elements: Shape, Form, and Color with a collection of 19 works, including a painting by Deborah Weisel, the founder of the Springfield Art Museum. This exhibition is the seventh in a series, focusing on various artists, styles, and trends, pulled exclusively from the Museum's outstanding collection of contemporary American watermedia. This exhibit was guest curated by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.

    October 26, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Eldredge Gallery

    The Kewpie doll was a much beloved elf-child created by illustrator Rose O'Neill. The Kewpie was introduced to the world in December 1909, in a cartoon published in the "Ladies' Home Journal."

  39. Shape, Form, and Color

    October 26, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Armstrong Gallery

    There are seven essential elements of art which outline the fundamental components of an artwork. These include color, line, shape, form, value, texture, and space. We often judge an artwork by how effectively the artist uses these elements. This exhibit will explore three of the seven elements: Shape, Form, and Color with a collection of 19 works, including a painting by Deborah Weisel, the founder of the Springfield Art Museum. This exhibition is the seventh in a series, focusing on various artists, styles, and trends, pulled exclusively from the Museum's outstanding collection of contemporary American watermedia. This exhibit was guest curated by Cindy Quayle, Exhibitions Manager.

    October 27, 2021, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Musgrave Wing Galleries

    The Springfield Art Museum’s permanent collection contains over 10,000 objects in nearly all media. The works selected for this exhibition were chosen for their ability to reveal the ways in which artists respond to and reveal our cultural identity as Americans.

American art and history is shaped by multiple perspectives, stories, and experiences, and as such, this exhibition aims to present a multiplicity of views within the wider context of historical moments. The exhibition includes 75 works from as wide an array of artistic voices as possible within our current collection, including even more works by women, people of color, Native Americans, and LGBTQ+ communities. This exhibit includes major work by George Caleb Bingham, Asher B. Durand, Jackson Pollock, Wayne Thiebaud, and Alison Saar, among many others.
