Time in Art
Museum visitors are invited to breeze through the months of winter by contemplating Time in Art, on view December 16 through April 29, 2018. This exhibition features a variety of fine and decorative arts that interpret time and its passing through themes such as hours of the day and seasons of the year; early and late works by a single artist; works inspired by or copied from artistic forebears; the cycle of life; and memory. Included are paintings and works on paper by William Palmer, James Penney, and Easton Pribble – artists with strong ties to Central New York – as well as by the more internationally recognized name of Pablo Picasso. Time in Art features two 19th-century brooches made with human hair that may have been memento mori for lost loved ones, and showcases recent acquisitions by Barry Anderson, Robert Kipniss, and Agnes Murray, all gifts to the Museum of Art. Take the time to view these and other works of art from the collection. It is a rare opportunity to enjoy old favorites and discover new ones.
