As Tim and I mark the gallery’s 40th Anniversary, we are thankful that America is beginning to emerge from this harrowing pandemic. Pausing to reflect on the hardship endured by so many individuals, we are deeply respectful of the steadfast leadership of our Governor and for the expertise of the care providers during this time of duress. We also greatly appreciate the dedication of our staff and the kind support of our clientele at this time. Since its founding in 1980, the gallery has consistently championed the art of America, especially the superb contributions of its practitioners on paper. Over the years, we have been fortunate to have placed works by some of the iconic masters of this medium including Charles Burchfield, Arthur Dove, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, John Marin, John Singer Sargent and Charles Sheeler in museum and private collections across the country. Just as importantly, we are happy to have re-introduced several lesser known masters of the medium to the public through 40 years of exhibitions curated for venues throughout the country and abroad. And now it is a pleasure to share some of these memorable works with the artistic community that has supported the gallery over the the years. Thank you! Tim and I hope you have a moment to visit and savor this diverse array of aesthetic creativity. James M. Keny
