Art Teachers' Choice
August 13, 2021 through July 2022
The exhibition, “Art Teachers’ Choice” was guest curated by members of the North Country Art Teachers Association, who selected a compelling line-up of oil paintings, ink washes, watercolors, drawings, and sketches by Frederic Remington. The artworks will be displayed in the Museum’s Addie P. Newell Gallery, accompanied by comments by the art teachers on the artworks they selected.
“The ideal curator is a thoughtful, informed, and discerning viewer of art, and we especially appreciate curators who understand artwork from the perspective of art-making,” says Laura Desmond, Remington Museum Curator & Educator. “Our North Country art teachers have these qualifications in abundance, plus they are accustomed to viewing art with an eye to helping others to understand and appreciate it. I’m sure that visitors to this exhibition will appreciate their insightful comments on the works in the show.”
