'Modern Masters' comes to Reynolda House

Demon Deacon and a Masters poster“Modern Masters from the Smithsonian American Art Museum,” an exhibition that examines the complex nature of American art in the mid-twentieth century, will open at Reynolda House Museum of American Art on Friday, Oct. 7. The exhibition, North Carolina’s first from the Smithsonian American Art Museum in nearly 10 years, will remain on view through Dec. 31, 2011.

Several events will be going on during opening weekend. On opening day, museum staff will hold Looking Aloud Gallery Discoveries, a series of informal yet engaging 30-minute gallery experiences in the “Modern Masters” exhibition. The talks will be held hourly from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are included with the price of admission.

On Sunday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m., professor of music Louis Goldstein will explore the impact that the abstract expressionist painters of New York had on the great American composer Morton Feldman. In addition, Goldstein will perform Feldman’s piano music. Goldstein’s most recent recording was ranked in 2010’s top ten modern composition recordings by Wire magazine. This event is free for members and students and $8 for non-members.
