Pearce Museum Art Exhibit

As a visitor to the Pearce Museum — or any other art museum — do you ever walk through the galleries and wonder, “How did the artist make that?” or “How does that painting look so realistic?” Many of us are mystified by artwork; it seems so complex and difficult to create. A brand new art exhibit at the Pearce Museum aims to answer those questions and shed some light on the mysteries of the art-making process. Into the Artist’s Studio will open to the public on Monday, March 3 and run through May 30, 2014.

This exhibit will offer visitors an in-depth look at the entire art-making process — from inspiration, to process, to completion.  Museum visitors will experience specific works of art through the eyes of the artists who created them, discover the artists’ backgrounds, and trace the road each took to become a fine artist.

 Two and three-dimensional works from the Pearce Museum’s permanent Western Art collection, along with works on loan from nationally-known Western artists will act as the cornerstones of the exhibition. Items of inspiration, and artists’ personal stories will flesh out the story.

 Into the Artist’s Studio will offer children and adults alike a chance to interact with the exhibit by creating their own western landscape, sketching a still life, and taking part in an artistically-inspired scavenger hunt.  

To kick off the opening of the exhibit, the Pearce Museum will host a Family Day on Saturday, March 8, full of fun art activities for the entire family. The event and admission to the museum is free to the public from noon until 4 p.m. There will be a number of activities such as face painting, clay sculpture building, and color creations.

For more information about the Pearce Museum, call 903-875-7642.
