"King Priam" by Benjamin West, on view in "Picturing America"
This season's quarterly open house at GMOA presents an opportunity to view current exhibits "The Lithographs of Carroll Cloar" and "Women, Art and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise" after-hours and to preview "Picturing America: Signature Works from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art." The Westmoreland exhibit, which opens to the public the following day, includes 57 works—portraits, still lifes, sculptures, landscapes and narrative paintings—created over a span of 200 years, reflecting the evolution of America from colonial times to the mid-20th century. Reception highlights include music spun by DJ Bill Nelson, Tarot readings by Kim Brown, a printmaking art project, light refreshments, gallery talks and, outside, a full moon. Patricia Cloar Milsted, widow of artist Carroll Cloar, will speak alongside exhibit curator Carissa DiCindio for a gallery talk at 6 p.m.
