ANDOVER, MASS.- The Addison Gallery of American Art, located on the campus of Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., opened its winter exhibition season in January with a constellation of exhibitions that showcase the Addison’s paintings, prints, and photographs, offering a rare opportunity to explore the collection in depth in a variety of media. Opened January 19, Eye on the Collection concentrates on the Addison’s paintings, while Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking explores the range and diversity of the Addison’s vast print holdings, with a focus on techniques. Frame by Frame: Photographic Series and Portfolios highlights the Addison’s extensive collection of complete photographic series and portfolios and opened February 2.

About the winter shows, Brian T. Allen, the Addison’s Mary Stripp and R. Crosby Kemper Director, remarked, “The Addison’s collection, now numbering more than 17,000 objects, is one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world. Because our exhibitions change completely three times a year, we are able to present both well-loved masterpieces together with hidden treasures from our collection in new contexts each season. Our winter shows celebrate the collection and are an outstanding example of how we use it to give visitors a unique experience every time they visit the Addison.”

January 19–March 10: Eye on the Collection
Eye on the Collection anchors the season, bringing together well-known and loved paintings that are among the best in the Addison’s collection. The show features works from the 18th through 20th centuries by artists such as John Singleton Copley, George Inness, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, John Henry Twachtman, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock.

January 19–March 17: Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking
Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking explores ancient and modern printmaking techniques through a selection of approximately 100 woodcuts, engravings, etchings, drypoints, aquatints, mezzotints, lithographs, chromolithographs, and screenprints from the Addison’s collection. The works in the exhibition span more than two centuries and feature artists such as Paul Revere, Charles de Saint Memin, John James Audubon, Currier & Ives, James M. Whistler, Edward Hopper, George Bellows, John Sloan, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, Chuck Close, Richard Serra, and Frank Stella. Generous support for this exhibition was provided by the Mark Rudkin Fund.

February 2–April 14: Frame by Frame: Photographic Series and Portfolios from the Collection
Rounding out this season is an exhibition that highlights important and complete sets of photographic portfolios by renowned artists in the Addison’s collection, Frame by Frame: Photographic Series and Portfolios from the Collection. With a focus on twentieth-century documentary photography, this exhibition includes Aaron Siskind’s Harlem Document, a vibrant portrayal of 1930s Harlem culture and society; Robert Frank's pivotal series, The Americans, a piercing look beneath the surface of 1950s American life; Bruce Davidson’s Brooklyn Gang, a moving portrait of postwar urban youth culture; William Christenberry’s Alabama Photographs, an intimate chronicle of the effects of time’s passage on the artist’s beloved South; Bill Owens’ Suburbia, an alternately humorous, poignant, and devastating view of 1970s America and the middle class migration to the suburbs; and William Eggleston’s portfolio 14 Pictures, a collection of the artist’s characteristically understated images in which the everyday is imbued with beauty and mystery.
