Nov 13- March 5
curated by Jane Legrow
Registrar & Director of Exhibitions
I am so excited to have a large textile installation of hand-dyed lace in this exhibition, to be featured among historic and contemporary art and artists. There will be several programs throughout the exhibition- more info on the dye and pigment workshops I will be offering coming soon.
Chromatopia will feature more than 30 objects drawn from the Lyman Allyn’s own collection as well as from other museums and private lenders. Among the range of objects telling the stories of color from prehistory to the present will be ancient Greek and Egyptian artifacts, late medieval illuminated manuscripts, 15th century Chinese ceramics, 17th and 18th century Flemish oil paintings, 19th and 20th century European and American paintings, and traditional Australian Aboriginal bark paintings. Works by modern artists, such as Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz and Gene Davis, will be featured, as will new works by artists using color in interesting ways, including Carson Fox, Patricia Miranda and Porfirio Gutiérrez.
