Coos Bay, OR – From December 9 through February 4, 2017 Coos Art Museum will be featuring a large exhibition of selected works from its Permanent Collection. The exhibition opens with a free reception for the public at the Museum on Friday, December 9, 2016 from 5pm until 7pm.
“Permanent Collection: People and Prints” focuses on two areas within Coos Art Museum’s Permanent Collection – portraits and figures, and fine art prints. Many newly acquired works will be on display for the first time at the Museum and this will be an opportunity to savor the breadth of the Permanent Collection which now includes over 595 works. Many of the works are by well-known local artists such as Gan Martin, while others are by artists with an international reputation such as the Englishmen Henry Moore and Lynn Chadwick.
Coos Art Museum’s fine art print collection is broad containing styles from abstract works such as “Constellations” by the New York artist Howardena Pindell to an Art Nouveau inspired figure by the Czech artist Dagmar Mezricky.
