In 1931, when Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse dedicated Guild Hall as a cultural center for the community, The New York Times noted that Howard Russell Butler's portrait of Thomas Moran on exhibit was not a loan but an acquisition. "It marks the beginning of a permanent collection which is proposed to build up in Guild Hall," the newspaper explained. From the beginning more than 85 years ago, the holdings have grown significantly in size and scope. In the early 1960's, the collection began to focus on the artists who have lived and worked in the region, including some of the country's most celebrated painters, sculptors, photographers, and graphic artists. In 1973, the museum received the distinction of being accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, and it was re-accredited in 2010. Today, the holdings of 19th, 20th, and 21st century art number some 2,400 objects, and the museum continues to acquire works by donation and acquisition. Curated by Jessica Frost, Associate Curator/Registrar of the Permanent Collection. Join us in the Woodhouse Gallery. FREE but reservations are strongly encouraged.

Pamela Topham was selected as the Top Prize winner of the 77th Annual Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition (2015) by Marla Prather, Curator for the Development of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Museum of Modern Art. Detailed colored pencil drawings, photographs, and multiple site visits are sources for Topham’s tapestry designs. She weaves on a high warp tapestry loom using wool silk and linen in varied textures and hues to form the foreground, while fine gradations of wool and silk capture the interplay of the ever-changing relationships of earth, sea and sky in the distance. Curated by Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director and Chief Curator. Join us in the Spiga Gallery. FREE but reservations are strongly encouraged.

This exhibition traces the familial artistic legacy of patriarch Manoucher Yektai and his two sons: painter/sculptor Darius and furniture maker/sculptor Nico. Manoucher Yektai’s life has brought him through three cultures: Iran, France, and the United States. His trajectory can be seen as a search for Modernism. From Iran, where under Islamic strictures about imagery, free artistic expression was not available, first to the ripe ambience of the School of Paris, then to the fledgling excitement of the emerging New York School. Manoucher’s life in the arts directly influenced his sons and the path that they chose. The similarities and differences of their work and their visions will be examined. Moderated by Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director and Chief Curator. Join us in the Moran Gallery. FREE but reservations are strongly encouraged.
