Exhibit opens May 29 – reception June 6
HARRISBURG –Early Modern Prints from the Gminder Collection will be on display in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College from Monday, May 29 through Thursday, June 27, 2013.
The collection is on loan from the Gminder family. Eliot Gminder has a background in philosophy, teaches part time at the Gettysburg Campus of HACC and has been collecting art for more than a decade.
“They (the artists) broke from the High Renaissance art that was so perfect, and tried to make art that wasn't about recreating ‘perfection,’ but was the artist's impression of what they saw beyond perfection,” Gminder explained.
The late 1800s through the early 1900s was a tumultuous time in the European art world. The Gminder collection reflects the changes of the period and the progression of art movements such as Impressionism, Cubism and Surrealism.
The collection includes a study for Guernica by Pablo Picasso and a pastel of bathers by Edgar Degas. Other noteworthy artists in the collection include Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissaro and Paul Signac.
Summer gallery hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Thursday, or by appointment.
The Rose Lehrman Art Gallery receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Visit the gallery on HACC’s website at www.hacc.edu under the Rose Lehrman Arts Center and on Facebook.
