Redefining the Picture Frame


Artistic Vision: Redefining the Picture Frame

Curated by William Adair

November 5–December 6, 2015
The Art League Gallery

A frame conservator, frame historian, and master gilder, William Adair began his career in frame conservation at the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery. His special exhibit at The Art League Gallery features a collection of frames created by 19th and early 20th century artists and examines their increasing interest in how their art would be framed and displayed. Discover how artists looked to each other and to a number of art movements to develop designs that would become extensions of the artwork. 

Curator William Adair will be giving an informal talk before and after the opening reception (6:00 pm and 8:00 pm, Thursday, November 12). To attend, please RSVP.

This exhibit is a gift to our community. It is free and all are encouraged to attend. 

Gallery Hours:

Monday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Open Thursdays until 9:00 pm
Sunday, 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm
