We have wonderful exhibitions scheduled for the summer of 2015 that feature two very different but equally treasured personal collections. We look forward to “The Greatest Poem”— American Art in the Robert B. Ekelund, Jr. and Mark Thornton Collection, which features a selection of paintings, prints, and drawings by such important American artists as Winslow Homer, George Bellows, and Arthur Dove. We also are excited to present Between the Black and Caspian Seas: Antique Rugs from the Caucasus, Selections from the Collection of Larry Gerber. This exhibition will introduce our audiences to the handmade weavings of this region of western Asia. For centuries, this region has supported a diverse and rich history with influences from Byzantium, Islam, Central Asian Turks, as well as the Ottoman Empire and Europeanized Imperial Russia. We are grateful to our local collectors who have graciously made these special exhibitions available to our audience.
