The Landscape of Memory explores a singular artistic vision through the Museum’s extensive collection of works by Frank C. Eckmair. An internationally recognized printmaker, Eckmair has an intimate affinity for the quiet landscape of rural central New York. His subjects are its farm fields, stone walls, abandoned homes, and old barns.
Through memory and direct observation, Eckmair has created a poignant body of work that invites us to contemplate this historic and beautiful region. It is filled with, as he says, “many things not to be forgotten.” More Eckmair prints and other New York landscapes can be seen in the exhibitions Not Just Another Pretty Place and Wish You Were Here in the West Gallery and Corridor.
