An Eclectic Exhibition
of
People, Places, and Things

A diverse set of prints from the Gladys M. Lux collection comprise the exhibition titled, “People, Places, and Things”. Only one print in this exhibition has been exhibited at the LUX Center previously, the remainder have never been exhibited at the LUX. Included in the exhibition are artists such as Georges Rouault, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, and Luigi Lucioni. In addition there are six serigraph prints by our patron Ms. Lux.

As the title of the exhibition implies, the subjects in the prints are various—from children’s dolls arranged together to religious iconography; from rural New England scenes to a city building; and from flowers to animals. The artists’ media used for the prints exhibited is limited to woodcuts, serigraphs, and etchings. This limitation provides an opportunity for the viewer to compare the artists’ use of these techniques to the other artists using the same methods. The media types will be grouped together in the exhibition.

“People, Places, and Things” may be seen from May 5, 2016 through September 6, 2016 in the Gladys M. Lux Historical Gallery on the second floor.
