Sheldon Museum of Art opening new exhibitions
The outdoor sculpture collection of the Sheldon Museum of Art rightfully garners attention from around the globe for its master works by the likes of David Smith, Richard Serra, Mark di Suvero, Gaston Lachaise, Claes Oldenburg and Coojse van Bruggen.
The two first-floor galleries also opened Jan. 25 with these exhibitions:
Richard Diebenkorn: 41 Etchings Drypoints. Between 1963 and 1965, Richard Diebenkorn produced a series of more than 100 drypoint etchings of domestic interiors, portraits of his wife, still lifes, nudes and San Francisco Bay Area landscapes. In the 1960s, Richard Diebenkorn began experimenting with printmaking at Crown Point Press, eventually publishing a series of 41 etchings and drypoint. Sheldon is presenting the series in its entirety from Jan. 25 through July 2.
Sheldon Treasures. The focus in the continuously operating gallery that showcases the best work of Sheldon’s acclaimed collection of 20th and 21st century American art will focus on smaller gems in the spring. It will include intimate scale works by Romare Bearden, Mary Cassatt, Marc Chagall, David Driskell, Marsden Hartley, Norman Lewis and Georgia O’Keefe, among others.
