Fine Americana. Cuban art. Local landscapes. The University of Virginia Art Museum will host three exhibits that showcase art from these three genres at a Fourth Friday reception on Oct. 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
They are: “A Jefferson Ideal: Selections from the Dr. and Mrs. Henry C. Landon III Collection of American Fine and Decorative Arts,” “Mi Cuerpo, Mi País: Cuban Art Today” and “Chica Tenney: Advent.”
“A Jefferson Ideal” is an exhibition of the Landons’ nationally recognized collection. It focuses on American paintings and decorative arts from the late 17th through the 19th centuries.
“Mi Cuerpo, Mi País: Cuban Art Today” showcases a range of work by contemporary Cuban artists drawn from the collection and on loan to the museum. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Virginia Film Festival, Oct. 27-30, and its theme “In/Justice.”
“Chica Tenney: Advent” features landscape renderings in oil. The exhibit is in conjunction with a citywide exhibit of her work at six cultural institutions with which she has been affiliated and that celebrates her 40 years in Charlottesville.
Fourth Friday receptions are free to students and museum members. Students must bring a driver's license or passport identification to verify they are 21 or older. For all others, there is a $3 admission charge.
