THE SUBJECT IS LIGHT: THE HENRY AND SHARON MARTIN COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY REALIST PAINTINGS
June 9 - September 3, 2012
10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Maryhill Museum of Art
Henry and Sharon Martin began collecting art over 30 years ago, amassing an important collection of Hudson River School luminist paintings. During the last decade, the Martins have focused their collecting on the living artists of Cape Cod, with the belief that representational art is re-emerging as an important element in American art. This exhibition showcases 23 of these paintings, including works by Robert Hunter, Pam Pindell, Joe McGurl and Jacob Collins, all of whom have ties to R.H. Ives Gammell.
