Alice Schille: A Many Sided Genius- 20 Watercolors

May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

May 29 – July 1st, 2020

Opening Reception
Friday, May 29 (noon-8 pm)

Curated by
James Keny

As we celebrate the galleries’ 40th Anniversary, it is particularly exciting to showcase a group of extraordinary watercolors by Alice Schille, a remarkable Ohio-born artist whose work has been featured at the gallery since it opened in 1980. Happily, over the last few decades, Schille has re-gained much of the critical acclaim she once commanded in the early years of the twentieth century. To borrow a recent quote from Kathleen Foster, the Curator of American Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a leading scholar of the American watercolor movement:

“In (Schille’s) hands, watercolor demonstrated its utility as a modern medium and a medium for modernists. Her brave, distinctive, and inventive work won her critical praise, patronage, awards from many exhibition juries, and election to many artists’ societies. By 1920, at age fifty, Schille was easily the most versatile, accomplished, and progressive female watercolorist in the United States.”

To celebrate Keny Galleries’ 40th Anniversary safely, the opening of the exhibition An American Album, Masterworks on Paper: 1870-2020 & (in the upstairs gallery) Alice Schille: A Many Sided Genius (20 Watercolors) will be held as an open house this Friday from 12 – 8 pm.
