Avery to Warhol: Summer Salon at VBMA
July 1 – September 7, 2020, ALL GALLERIES
The VBMA will reopen with Avery to Warhol: Summer Salon at VBMA, an exhibition of our new Senior Curator, Anke Van Wagenberg’s selections from the vault. She was attracted to the many artworks of quality in the collection although she is the first to admit that the result of her search is a subjective selection. The exhibition will open with a salon-style recent gift to the collection, Henry Hubbell’s Portrait of Three Sisters. They were the daughters of the founders of the Riomar neighborhood in Vero Beach. From this 1907 painting, we will virtually travel through the twentieth century from the paintings by Milton Avery to Andy Warhol and not only contemporary masters but also selections of the glass collection of the VBMA.
