Sarah Cain: hand in hand

March 31 - December 11, 2022

Frequently composing at the scale of architecture, the artist Sarah Cain seeks out new territories for painting. With wit, irreverence, and a palette informed by California sunshine, Cain fearlessly works against the grain of a tradition- and history-bound medium to envision what a painting can be and how it can be encountered. Through her art, she manifests the value of responding to a place or a situation from a fresh perspective.

Andrew Wyeth: Life and Death

June 2 - October 16, 2022

This exhibition is the first public presentation of recently rediscovered drawings in which artist Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) imagines his own funeral. The exhibition connects the sketches now known as the Funeral Group to Wyeth’s decades-long engagement with death as an artistic subject in painting, and places his work in conversation with other artists’ self-portraiture and reflections on mortality.
