The Landscape of Memory - Prints by Frank C. Eckmair
November 19, 2010 to October 15, 2011
The Landscape of Memory explores a singular artistic vision through the Museum’s 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.”
