Recent Acquisitions: Go Figure
October 5, 2019 - December 31, 2019
Each year, the Newport Art Museum acquires and receives gifts of works of art for its permanent collection. The collection is now around 2,700 works of art and counting. This exhibition features a small selection of recent acquisitions, some of which have never been on view before. With so many donations of works of art that are still lifes or landscapes, only a quarter of the Museum’s recent acquisitions are works of art the show or include people. This gallery showcases some of these rare works. From glass and paper sculptures of the body to painted scenes that contain people together or alone, the works on display focus on the figure. We would like to thank our many donors who have generously given works of art to the Museum’s expanding collection.
