About Face: Portraits

Exhibit Details

September 20, 2014 - May 23, 2015
Armstrong Gallery

This exhibition is the second in a series, focusing on various artists, styles and trends, pulled exclusively from the Springfield Art Museum’s outstanding collection of contemporary American aquamedia. Building upon the work exhibited in American Abstraction, the works included here reflect both the continued tradition of portraiture as expressed in watermedia, ranging from the late 1960s to the present day, including the Museum’s newest acquisition from Watercolor USA, as well as work by Philip Pearlstein, Denny Bond and Stanley Rosenthal.
