'Charlottesville Collects' opens at Bayly

Drawn from more than 60 private collections in the Charlottesville area, this major exhibition features approximately 170 works, representing a range of media, time periods and cultures.

On view through Nov. 5, "Charlottesville Collects" includes paintings by American artists Milton Avery, Albert Bierstadt and Rembrandt Peale, and by European artists Eugene Boudin, Fran C. Cowper and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. Contemporary artists such as Sol LewWitt, Sally Mann, Dennis Oppenheim, Pat Stier and Jasper Johns are also represented. In addition, the exhibition offers rare Old Master prints by Durer, Rembrandt and Golzius, modern and contemporary prints, photographs, sculpture, glass and ceramics, and fine examples of Asian and African art.

"Charlottesville Collects" is sponsored by the Bayly Art Museum Volunteer Board. Its members, the museum director and curators and area collectors visited numerous private homes over the past year to select the pieces. Early on, it was determined that a separate exhibition of folk art would be organized at a later date. It was also decided that for space considerations, decorative arts would not be featured at this time.

The museum will host a public panel discussion on "Collecting and Connoisseurship" on Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m.
