Frank Eckmair: The Landscape of Memory

About the Exhibit

The Landscape of Memory explores a singular artistic vision through the Museum's extensive collection of works by Frank C. Eckmair. Through memory and direct observation, Eckmair 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."

The exhibition comes from the Museum's own 386-piece collection, which is the largest museum collection of Eckmair's works that exists. The Museum's curatorial and exhibition team worked with Eckmair during the last few years to archive his lifework, document the way he makes the prints and develop the exhibition.

The exhibition features more than 80 works, mostly landscapes, which include framed woodcut prints, as well as wood engravings, sculptures and the original woodblocks that track Eckmair's career as an artist and lifelong resident of Gilbertsville in central New York.
