Auspicious Animals: Chinese Export Porcelain Figures

On View: September 16 – December 4, 2021
In the 1700s and 1800s, decorative figures of animals were some of the most elaborate, exclusive, and expensive pieces of porcelain exported from China to Europe.

Capturing Color: Paintings by Louise Herreshoff Eaton

On View: September 1, 2021 (ongoing)
Capturing Color highlights a selection of Herreshoff's bold and expressive oils paintings created in the 1920s during visits to Cape Ann, Massachusetts – a popular area for painters and art colonies during the last 150 years. The works depict harbor scenes and landmarks still found in Gloucester, Rockport, and other areas on the North Shore.

Chaos in Color: Paintings by Almigdad Aldikhaiiry

On View: May – December 2021
In Chaos in Color, Aldikhaiiry presents his latest COVID series and paints with his signature bright color palette to illustrate the pandemic with an unexpected vibrancy and uses ironically playful COVID-19 motifs to reveal the multifaceted nature of pandemic life and the effects of COVID-19 on the environment and society.
