Art Museum Guided Tour: National Academy

Join Culture for the Non-Cultured Meetup, a large social organization, as we kick off 2009 with a guided tour of some gorgeous art and historical background at the National Academy of Art and Design! 

The weekend we are going is the last weekend these exhibits will be at the Museum.

Afterwards, there will be the usual eatin', drinkin', and merry-makin'.

The Two Exhibits

1.  George Tooker: A Retrospective

This exhibit

-- Received a GREAT review from the New York Times
The review described the "fascinating tension between the antique and the contemporary in the paintings ... Mr. Tooker's painstaking approach produces fantastic, extraordinarily palpable images ... Though often tinged with sadness, there is a sense of mystical hopefulness in many of Mr. Tooker's works."

(The images do seem quite DRAMATIC Take a look at some of his paintings online if you like)

-- Provides a window into the artistic process: The exhibit includes "a substantial selection of Tooker's rarely exhibited working drawings, allowing viewers a fascinating glimpse into the artist's working methods."

2.  The Unknown Blakelock

Blakelock is quite an intriguing character. He was diagnosed with late-onset schizophrenia, was virtually unrecognized as an artist until just before his death, and his original methods have been extremely influential to modern artists over the last century.

The exhibit includes more than 40 paintings, including those not usually seen (hence the title of the exhibit)

-- Blakelock's signature moonlight scenes and Indian encampments
-- Scenes from Jamaica and upper Manhattan
-- Still lifes
-- Seascapes
-- Imaginary paintings
