In 2018, the Juliet Art Museum acquired a significant collection of paintings from the Anne and Harvey Shreve Estate. Anne Shreve is a native of West Virginia and a life-long painter. Her interest in color and light is evident in her impressionistic still-lifes, figures, and landscapes. These recently acquired works will be on display along with many other works from the estate, showcasing the breadth of work Anne made over the course of her artistic career.
Storytellers: Art and Literature from the Juliet Art Museum Permanent Collection
Opening Saturday, December 14
Thursday, December 19 | 7:30pm
Art and literature are bound together in several ways. Great works of art have inspired great works of literature and, similarly, great works of literature have inspired art. Together art and literature have simultaneously represented similar movements and can be seen waving around each other, influencing one and another, and being used as a tool to teach students about liberal arts and humanity.
In this theme, Curator Jessica O’Hearn, has carefully selected works from the Juliet Art Museum Permanent Collection to represent the marrying together of art and literature as we present, Storytellers. In this exhibition, artists who have been inspired by literature are featured; including Marc Cagall’s etchings for Gogol’s Dead Souls, as well as paintings by Caroline Jennings, Faith Ringgold and Nora Benjamin Kubie. Also included in this exhibition will be several works on loan from the Huntington Museum of Art.
