MARGUERITE ZORACH—AN ART-FILLED LIFE


This exhibition brings together sixty paintings and textiles by Marguerite Thompson Zorach made between 1910 and 1965. In highlighting her contributions as a modernist who helped change the course of American art, the Farnsworth presents the full range of her skills and tells the story of her career as a painter, her participation in New Deal era mural projects, and her distinctive embroideries and their autobiographic significance. It also explores the many ways in which her surroundings, often the subject of her many paintings, prints, poems and textiles, were also shaped by her art. A catalog accompanies the exhibition.

BLACK AND WHITE: LOUISE NEVELSON/PEDRO GUERRERO


Louise Nevelson (1899-1988) is recognized as one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century whose wood sculptures, painted in black or white, revolutionized artists’ ideas of what sculpture could be. This exhibition will feature signature examples of these works, drawn from the Farnsworth’s collection, the second largest collection of Nevelson’s work in the world.  Some of these works reflect the artist’s interests in creating environments, in which her home and studio were laboratories for her innovations. Nevelson’s home and studio were captured in a series of arresting black and white photographs by Pedro E. Guerrero (1917-2012) taken in 1978 and 1979. Guerrero, a renowned architectural photographer is perhaps best known for his images of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings which brought him to national attention. Guerrero’s photographs of Nevelson in her home and studio, in combination with examples of her sculpture, offer a captivating look at her life and work.
The Lead Sponsor of this exhibition is Gail Catharine Bertuzzi
The exhibition is made possible in part through a grant from the Davis Family Foundation
The primary media sponsor is Maine Home + Design
