A Mix of Art

The Williams Collage Museum in Williamstown MA always seems to have a great exhibition of art that spans time and nations.   You can always count on seeing one of the original 26 copies of the Declarations of Independence and a couple of pages of the original Constitution with handwritten corrections in the margins.  And you can always count on a new exhibit of Contemporary Art.  Their permanent collection has paintings you’ve seen in text books and quality lesser known works from lesser known artists.

Jon and I spent some time there today.    I took photos of the pieces that struck me most.  I didn’t get much information on most of them,  I wasn’t in the mood to read about the art, I just wanted to look at it.  I did jot down  the artists names or where they were from.    It’s a mix of work and I’ve provided some links if you like to know more about some of them (if you don’t already know)  So here they are, enjoy!

  1. So glad to see the shoe paintings by Andy Warhol. Love them! Reminds me of your own series of shoe potholders. (of which I have the loveliest one. Pink with bling!)

  2. I love the top two photos-the sculpture from India and the painting by Elmer Bishoff. I’ve never heard of him but I’ll have to check out more of his work. Thanks for sharing your visit.
