Like the first exhibition of this name, presented in 2004, Objects of Our Affection features a wide variety of works owned by University friends, alumnae, and faculty, participants in the Gallery’s membership organization, and artists who have exhibited at the Gallery. The current exhibition features works ranging from the second half of the nineteenth century to the present, with a primary focus on American art.
From the delicate portrait miniatures on ivory painted by Elsie Dodge Pattee to the monumental watercolor on paper by Richard Yarde, works in the exhibition not only span a range of sizes, but also of techniques and styles. Connecticut Impressionist and Tonalist oil paintings include works by John Henry Twachtman and Bruce Crane; among the etchings and lithographs exhibited are landscapes by James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Louis Lozowick as well as contemporary artist Miriam Schapiro’s homage to Frida Kahlo, who is also represented in the exhibition with a striking surrealist drawing. Among the works by contemporary artists who have been featured in past exhibitions at the Gallery are large works on paper by Ann McCoy and new sculptures by Robert Kirschbaum based on his Devarim drawings.
