Charles Courtney Curran:
October 30, 2014–February 1, 2015
French-trained American artist Charles Courtney Curran (1861–1942) is known for his sparkling canvases of women in gardens and other outdoor settings. Curran brought the broken brushstrokes and sun-drenched palette of French Impressionist painting to a distinctly American landscape—creating many of his works along the shores of Lake Erie and in the mountain hamlet of Cragsmoor, New York.

February 21–April 19, 2015
This exceptional group of photographs by major artists working in the circle of Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946) captures the international development of photography as it moved from the painterly Impressionistic images of the late 19th century to the modernist aesthetic that began after the turn of the 20th century. Featuring rare, hand-crafted vintage prints made in a variety of processes by influential and iconic masters of the medium including Gertrude Kasebier (1852–1934), Clarence White (1871–1925), Edward Steichen (1879–1973), and Paul Strand (1890–1976), who are all represented by significant groups of photographs. This exhibition is drawn from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg and organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
