"Matisse Drawings: Curated by Ellsworth Kelly from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation Collection"

October 23, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 22, 4-8PM

"Matisse Drawings: Curated by Ellsworth Kelly from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation Collection," a unique exploration of Henri Matisse’s drawings by one of America’s greatest abstract artists, provides new insight into the French master’s work. For this special exhibition, Ellsworth Kelly surveyed Matisse’s drawings from 1900 through 1950, revealing Matisse’s process and the range of his creativity as a draughtsman. Many of the 45 works on view, from quick sketches to highly detailed images, have rarely or never-before been exhibited. To accompany this display, Kelly selected work from his own large-scale "Suite of Plant Lithographs" (1964–66) for presentation in an adjacent gallery, illuminating both the sympathies and distinct differences between the two artists. The entire installation, including frame choice and placement of works, was conceived by Kelly, and this is among the last exhibitions on which he worked before his death (December 27, 2015). In his tribute to Kelly, Jerry Saltz described him as “the artist I now think of as the American Matisse.”

"Matisse Drawings: Curated by Ellsworth Kelly from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation Collection" is organized by the American Federation of Arts and the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum in collaboration with The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.

The exhibition was made possible by the generous support of the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. Additional support provided by the JFM Foundation, and Mrs. Donald M. Cox.

Support for this exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art is provided by Sara & Joshua Slocum, Ginny & Martin Gold, Rochelle & Mark Rosenberg, The Jerome Levy Foundation, Judith D. & Roger Widmann, The Fifth Floor Foundation, and Jon & Barbara Landau.



Mark di Suvero’s Monumental Sculpture

Fall 2016 – Fall 2017

This fall the KMA will host two of internationally renowned artist Mark di Suvero’s pioneering steel sculptures. Since the 1950s, di Suvero has transformed industrial materials such as wood timbers, tires, and scrap metal to create works that dynamize their setting. Visitors will find the space of the KMA’s South Lawn activated with "Yoga" (1991) and the Marilyn M. Simpson Sculpture Garden with "Rust Angel" (1995), works that exemplify di Suvero’s ability to imbue familiar sites with an original energy.

This project is supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in honor of Charles Bergman's many years of counsel and service. Additional Support for this exhibition is provided by Jon & Nancy Bauer, Victoria & Stephen Morris, the Donna & Marvin Schwartz Foundation, the Silverweed Foundation, and the Ohnell Family Foundation. Special thanks to Elizabeth & Samuel Sachs for their support and collaboration.

  • Small museum! Came here for the Namaste Yoga which was a neat event of yoga and museum admission. The exhibits were mostly paintings and canvas landscapes and it was pleasant. They also have tables and chairs to sit outside and enjoy the view.
  • The people are so nice and the art is beautiful. It is so wonderful that you can submit your art and let the public see it. The art is always changing so you will always see something new and different. And the art is from different schools, and so many kids. There are also differant types of art
  • A very big thank you to Ames for making our visit so much richer and more informative.
  • We came to this place for a fun family time, the staff wasn’t the friendliest. They watch us like hawks and if we tried to point out something on the paintings, since the activity told us to find something, they yelled at us.
  • What a lovely place to visit! Nice inspirational exhibits and well stocked learning room.
