Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC, Offers Look at Permanent Collection

The Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Kaleidoscope: Changing Views of the Permanent Collection, on view through May 9, 2010.

The exhibition features selected paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, photographs, furniture, decorative arts and other objects drawn from the Cameron Art Museum's permanent collection.

The exhibition's configuration will change throughout the year, as individual works are rotated. This approach is taken for several reasons: to protect fragile works on paper from prolonged exposure to light; to allow additional works from the collection to be exhibited; and to create or elicit new, unexpected meanings and associations between works of art and viewers.

The first installation of Kaleidoscope will be organized by color, with works of art selected by and installed with works of similar or related palettes. The resulting juxtapositions are designed to yield unexpected and unusual relationships, as works of divergent periods, styles and subjects are seen together for the first time, related only by the artists' and artisans' choices of color. Subsequent installations may be organized by single-artist installations, themes or subject matter.

There will be related exhibition programs presented throughout the exhibition, including films on Minnie Evans, Claude Howell, Isamu Noguchi and other artists represented in the collection; dramatic readings from Claude Howell's journals; gallery talks, music and lectures.
