Exhibition: The Past Is Never Dead: Kristin Casaletto

"The Past Is Never Dead: Kristin Casaletto" shows prints by the contemporary Georgia-based artist.

A relative newcomer to the South, she approaches its complex history from the perspective of an outsider without marginalizing its culture.

On the Stump: What Does it Take to Get Elected in Georgia? considers the evolution of campaigning for political office in the state from the passage of the white primary in 1900 to the presidential election of 2012. The exhibition invites visitors to step into the shoes of a candidate and onto the campaign trail, from the initial decision to run, to crafting a strategy, winning the nomination, shaking hands, kissing babies and everything in between.

Exhibition: “The Genius of Martin Johnson Heade”

Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Largely forgotten by scholars and collectors after his death, Martin Johnson Heade was one of the most varied and inventive painters of the 19th century. He is now recognized as one of the most important American artists of his generation and unique in devoting equal time to landscape, marine and still-life subjects. Organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, from its collection of Heade’s work, this exhibition presents the artist’s great creative range in examples from an early folk portrait to a late magnolia still life.
