Contact: (304) 529-2701
A guided tour of the Huntington Museum of Art exhibit titled Reach for the Sky will take place on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, at 2 p.m. HMA Senior Curator Chris Hatten will lead the gallery walk. Admission is free.
Reach for the Sky brings together a group of works from the HMA permanent collection connected by a sky theme. This exhibit continues at HMA through Feb. 4, 2018. “This exhibit gives us the opportunity to showcase some striking works from our collection that have not been widely seen by our visitors,” Hatten said.
From the masterful skies of Charles Harold Davis to the otherworldly views of famed science-fiction artist Chesley Bonestell, Reach for the Sky will feature not only paintings and prints but also decorative arts such as glass and furniture. A wide variety of eras and artistic styles will be included, such as 19th century paintings by Charles Daubigny and Eugene Boudin, work by 20th century masters such as Sonia Delaunay, Rockwell Kent and Ralph Blakelock, and contemporary painters such as Donald Sultan and Tula Telfair.
This exhibit is presented with support from The Isabelle Gwynn and Robert Daine Exhibition Endowment.
This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
