"Picturing America: Signature Works from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art." Through Aug. 24. Fifty-six works from the Westmoreland's permanent collection make up this exhibition that spans 200 years of American art, from colonial times to the mid-20th century, as the United States came into its own as the cultural capital of the world.

Seen through the subject areas of portraiture, still-life, landscape and narrative painting, the artists represented in this exhibition serve as a survey of American art. The exhibition features oil and tempera paintings and bronze sculptures by artists ranging from Charles Willson Peale to Mary Cassatt to Robert Henri to Harriet Frishmuth.
