The Bolton Historical Museum would like to invite you to visit our two new exhibitions for the 2019 season.  Admission is free.

The Bolton Historical Museum is proud to present the following two new exhibits for the 2019 season.

Landscapes Lost & Found:  Two Centuries of Art from Bolton Landing

For more than two centuries, the landscapes of Bolton Landing have exercised a powerful influence upon the work of some of the nation’s foremost artists. The artists represented in Landscapes Lost and Found: Two Centuries of Art from Bolton Landing will include painters of some of the earliest American landscapes, members of the Hudson River School and the American Pre-Raphaelite movement, twentieth century modernists Weber Furlong, John Graham and Dorothy Dehner and at least one indisputable mid-century master, sculptor David Smith.  In fact, Landscapes Lost and Found will be the first public exhibition of work by David Smith in Bolton Landing in more than fifty years. Prominent 21st century artists will complete the show.


Sculptors’ Studies: Prospect Mountain Sculpture Show


Includes drawings and other materials related to the 1979 outdoor Prospect Mountain Sculpture Show: An Homage to David Smith, and is installed in the adjacent church gallery.  Dubbed an “homage to an homage” by the New York Times when it was presented in 1980 at The Hyde Collection and at the Briarcliff campus of Pace University, Sculptors’ Studies from the Prospect Mountain Show will allow us to host a dialogue about art and nature between Smith and prominent artists such as Mark di Suvero.


David Smith famously said, “Any abstract forms that I have seen, I have seen in nature.” In fact, every artist selected for this exhibition has responded to these natural landscapes in different and interesting ways, allowing us to consider and reflect upon changing images and interpretations of nature’s creations.


These two new exhibitions will be on view for the 2019 season only.
