The Huntsville Museum of Art is pleased to present the latest version of this recurring exhibition, showcasing artworks recently added to its permanent collection within the last year. Some were purchased for the collection, while others were gifts from generous donors. Some works will be familiar to those who came to view some of our past exhibitions, and others are by artists who are household names. All were carefully reviewed by the Museum’s Collections and Acquisitions Committee to fit the criteria established for the collection, and are compatible with the Museum’s collecting objectives and goals.
Recent acquisitions exhibitions are by nature a wonderful hodgepodge. Works of different styles and media are displayed together, sometimes with no unifying characteristic other than the fact that they came into the collection within a given period of time. But these shows serve an important purpose – they demonstrate the scope of the Museum’s collecting interests and provide us the opportunity to acknowledge generous donors whose gifts help our collection grow.
