The public is invited to attend our “Consider This” session occurring during the event at 12pm. This ongoing program offers guided exploration of a single work of art at the Remington Museum. This month's artwork is Frederic Remington’s seasonally-appropriate 1890 Studies for Antoine's Campfire. The session will take place in the Museum's Addie P. Newell Gallery, with docent Luanne Herzog guiding the discussion.
Visitors can also take a peek at the 2022 International Juried Art Exhibition on view in the Museum’s Richard E. Winter Gallery & Torrey Family Gallery. The exhibition, featuring work by artists living within a 100 mile radius of the Museum, is on display through Sunday, January 15, 2023. Many of the works on display are for sale with one third of the proceeds to benefit the Museum, and two thirds going to the artist.
