Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art to Open Regional Revelations Exhibition

Wayne Thiebaud (American, 1920-2021), Cut Pies, 1962, Oil on canvas, Private Collection 

The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is excited to share works rarely seen by the public in their new exhibition Regional Revelations: A Private Collection Showcase. This exhibition, on view from April 20-July 14, will feature the most prized possessions from regional art collectors. The eye of an art collector is built from experience, passion, knowledge, and the environment surrounding them. By presenting an exhibition of selections from local collectors, museum visitors can experience the art on view through these eyes. Each collector’s interests and focus are highly personal and often eclectic. The variety of artists, mediums, and subjects can provide new contexts for these artists. Some artists, such as Wayne Thiebaud, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Pablo Picasso may be familiar to the viewer while others may be new discoveries. Viewing these collections might inspire art lovers to consider how artwork can be incorporated into their own daily lives, maybe even finding their own passion for collecting. The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art will be holding an opening reception on Friday, April 19 from 4-7pm that is free and open to the public.  More information about upcoming events and exhibitions at the AKMA can be found at www.albrecht-kemper.org
