Opening Reception Sunday, November 10th, 2-5 pm First Friday Reception Friday, December 6th, 6-9 pm This November and December, Adam Cave Fine Art presents a special exhibition and sale of rare and historically important, American and European prints. 100 YEARS ON PAPER features etchings, engravings, lithographs, woodblock, and silkscreen prints, all made between 1858 and 1958. The roughly thirty works, by almost as many artists, include a wide range of styles, from Turn-of-the-Century Impressionism to 1940s American Realism reminiscent of the WPA. Among the highlights of the exhibit are The Rag Gatherers (etching, 1858) by James McNeill Whistler; En Plein Soleil (etching, 1881) by James Tissot; The Lovers (wood engraving, 1928) by Rockwell Kent; and Sunday Morning (lithograph, 1939) by Thomas Hart Benton. Other artists include Clare Leighton, Beatrice Mandelman, Gordon Grant, Dale Nichols, and Ellison Hoover. Much of this artwork can be found in museum collections, world-wide. In many cases, paintings by these artists, and their contemporaries, have reached astronomical prices. However, original, hand-pulled prints like these continue to be an affordable option for collectors of historical work. 100 YEARS ON PAPER opens with an afternoon reception on Sunday, November 10th in the gallery's upstairs exhibit space in downtown Raleigh. The show runs through the end of the year.
