Intersections of Academics and Art
Housed in a former church in the gothic-revival style, the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery hosts five to six exhibitions a year, with loans from major national and regional art museums, galleries, and collectors. Exhibitions are made possible by The Friends of the Gallery, the Gallery's membership group, as well as other generous sponsors.
A Contemplation of Scenery: The Vesell Family Collection
September 3–December 5, 2021
This exhibit features works from All That Is Glorious Around Us: The Vesell Family Collection, 45 predominantly American landscape paintings from the nineteenth century recently donated by Hilary Peery Vesell in memory of her father, Dr. Elliot Vesell. Highlights of the collection include work by Henry Ary, Susie Barstow, John William Casilear, Maria Holley, and George Henry Smillie, among numerous others of the Hudson River School canon. Exploring such topics as symbolic imagery, tourism, industry, and environmental issues, the exhibit provides a lens through which to view these paintings anew.
