Collections offer a wonderfully diverse selection of more than 2500

donors have provided objects of art, funds, and services to create this
important cultural legacy.
September 3 – November 20Alice Schille's Miniature Watercolors (1914-1935): Gems Brevity
This exhibition celebrates the 150th anniversary of
Schille’s birth through her miniature watercolors that were produced in a
variety of locations from France and England to North Africa, Guatemala and
Santa Fe, New Mexico. These tiny paintings range in style from Impressionism to
Post Impressionism to Cubism. Schille’s journals, studies, and artifacts will
also be on display. This exhibition is curated by Keny Galleries, and in conjunction
with the Columbus Museum of Art and the Canton Museum of Art.
Reception: Thursday, September 5, 5:00-7:00 pm
January 20 – March 21Lake Erie: Life on the Edge
The photographs in the exhibition
take the viewer on the 900-mile perimeter journey around the lake. Although
Lake Erie’s volume is just 1/46 of the other Great Lakes, its warm and shallow
waters produce more life than all the other lakes combined. Through aerial
images, one is able to engage the lake as a whole, examining antiquated
industry as well as new energy resources. The ground-level shots display the
natural habitats, the juxtaposition between industry and recreation, and the
plethora of people and wildlife.
Reception: Thursday, January 23, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.(Please note: The gallery is closed February 22 - March 1 for mid-term break.)
