KMA “Whistler & Company: The Etching Revival” Opening Reception

@ KMA members

The Knoxville Museum of Art will host an opening reception for “Whistler & Company: The Etching Revival,” which includes nearly a dozen works by expatriate American artist James Abbot McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) and more than 50 etchings by some of his most accomplished American and European contemporaries.  Whistler’s images of the River Thames, Venice and Parisian scenes revived, at least in part, the art of etching in the 19th century. The revival took hold in France, England and the United States. Artists reestablished the art of incising lines with an etching needle into a thin copper plate, which was then inked and pressed into paper with the help of a printing press to create impressions, as an art form that could stand on its own.

A cash bar will be available. The exhibition will be on display through Nov. 10.
