Selections From the Permanent Collection - Oak Ridge Art Center

This is a gem of an exhibition from the permanent collection of the Oak Ridge Art Center. There are pieces done by major artists that are in museums around the world. The exhibition closes Sunday at 4:00 PM, January 13. The only thing bad about the show was that it was too short. In case you don't know, the majority of the items in the collections had been collected by Mary and Alden Gomez and was purchased and contributed by Jack D. Walls in 1978. There are benefactors who have added to the collection.

This show has some of the strength in the prints collection: a beautiful print by Matisse, Odalisque; the Richard Lindner print, Portrait 11A; the Victor Vasarely print Unknown; the wonderful print by Rufio Tamayo, Dream Figure; and the two Karel Appel prints, la hune/paris and Epreuved' Artiste. The paintings are strong and varied in style and school.
The Matisse photo of the Odalisque can be seen in the Oak Ridge Art Center page on Art Museum Touring.com (www.artmuseumtouring.com).

It is well worth the trip to see the exhibition if you haven't seen it! But, you need to hurry!

-Sherrie
