September "One Hour One Work" Program at the Remington Museum

Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum invites the public to attend any of four “One Hour One Work” sessions in the month of September. The program is a chance for participants to slow down and dive deep into a single work of art on display at the Remington Museum. In September, there will be four small-group opportunities to spend quality time with The Love Call, which will be on loan to the Remington Museum from the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth, TX. Each session, a Museum educator will facilitate 60 minutes of focused looking, consideration, conversation, and interpretation of a single artwork. Four sessions will be offered each month, with a different artwork featured each month.

In September, the featured artwork will be Frederic Remington’s 1909 oil painting The Love Call. The program will be offered on the following dates and times: Monday, September 10th at 2:00 pm; Thursday, September 20th at noon; Saturday, September 22nd at 3:00 pm; and Wednesday, September 26th at 1:00 pm. The conversations will be facilitated by Museum educators Kathy Crowe, Julie Pratt, Laura Desmond, and Christine LeBel, respectively.

The program is free with admission to the Museum, but reservations are requested, in order to facilitate close looking and ease of conversation.To learn more and register, visit fredericremington.org, call 315-393-2425, or email desmond@fredericremington.org.

As part of an historic exchange between the Frederic Remington Art Museum and the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth, TX, nine iconic Remington Western paintings from the Sid Richardson Museum will be loaned to the Remington Museum in Ogdensburg.

“We are simply thrilled to offer to the public this set of masterworks from one of the most significant private collections of Remington’s work in the U.S.,” says Museum Educator Laura Desmond. “This loan from the Sid Richardson Museum is an unprecedented opportunity for visitors to the Remington Museum to deepen their understanding and appreciation for Remington’s work.” She added that the One Hour One Work program will give participants a chance to take in every detail of these outstanding paintings, one by one, in the months ahead.
