Radio Kansas Arts Calendar

Night: Works on Paper
Date: May 9, 2014 to August 31, 2014, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Venue: Wichita Art Museum - 1400 W. Museum Blvd.
Sponsor: Wichita Art Museum

The Event:      Night: Works on Paper. This exhibition has been organized by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth, Texas. Although night scenes--or nocturnes--have been produced by artists for centuries, it was American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834 to1903) who made the subject famous--or perhaps more accurately, infamous. Prints are an especially fitting media for nocturnes. Rich, dense, and inky, they share characteristics with the night. The versatile techniques offered by printmaking have enabled generations of artists to capture an endless variety of nighttime scenes and subjects. From narrative work by publishers Currier and Ives, to atmospheric work by Whistler, to abstractions by Ben Shahn, this exhibition features key examples of nocturnes from the 19th century to the 1960s.
