Material Friction

by The Staff on June 12, 2014


Do you enjoy Americana? This dauntingly varied exhibit of works from the collection of Jonathan and Karin Fielding, opening today (Thursday) at Williams College Museum of Art, is just the thing.

Material Friction: Americana and American Art includes “samplers and blanket chests . . . luminous paintings from the Hudson River School and works of high modernism by Georgia O’Keeffe. . . . It’s Joseph Cornell in conversation with a Colonial cabinet maker and John Frederick Kensett talking with a limner from Connecticut.”

Pictured is Stenciled Drawing of Two Puppies (mid-19th century).
