    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour or $3 exhibition only.

    Peter Milton is an internationally respected titan of etching who has enjoyed a long and fruitful career in printmaking. His large-scale, multilayered images defy visual logic while telling fantastic stories about life, loss, music, and art. Over the course of more than 50 years, Milton has created intricate visual worlds in more than 130 prints, many of which took well over a year to make. In this exhibition, his copper plates and preparatory materials—being shown for the first time alongside the final prints—shed light on the innovative techniques Milton devised to give visual life to his enigmatic tableaux.

    Eda Sterchi: Embodying the New Woman
    March 20, 2016October 9, 2016
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour.

    This focus exhibition highlights a recent gift to Evergreen Museum & Library of Two Women in an Interior by the twentieth-century American painter Eda Sterchi, a highly independent woman for her time. Trained both in Chicago and Paris, Sterchi was profoundly influenced by Japonisme and European modernism, particularly the Nabis—Bonnard, Denis, and Vuillard. The installation explores Sterchi's aesthetic choices and subject matter, partiularly in relation to the emergence of the bold and free-spirited "New Woman" from the role of obedient Victorian housewife.

    Peter Milton: Etching Enigmas explores the artistry of one of the preeminent etchers of the twentieth century, American Peter Milton. This celebrated printmaker has enjoyed a long and fruitful career. His large scale, multi-layered images defy visual logic while engaging one and all in fantastically detailed narratives addressing life, music, and art. This exhibition features a selection of the artist’s quintessential etchings, while its focus is a treasure trove of Milton’s actual copper plates. These rare survivors afford a most unique access to the innovative techniques Milton devised for his enigmatic compositions. They are, according to Milton, “the most beautiful things I make.”
