The Canton Museum of Art is on the cover of the February issue of American Art Review featuring its original exhibit, The Cleveland School: Watercolor and Clay, with a scholarly essay by William H. Robinson, curator of modern European art at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
The exhibit, on display through March 10, explores the regional and national influence of 35 artists, including Charles Burchfield, William Sommer, Guy Cowan, Edris Eckardt, Claude Conover and Viktor Schreckengost, with watercolors and ceramics covering the 1910s through the 1960s.
American Art Review chronicles American painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and decorative arts.
The museum organized the exhibit using works in its own collection and by borrowing works from private and regional collections.
The Canton Museum is recognized for its permanent collection of American watercolors and contemporary ceramics, unique exhibits and educational outreach programs. The museum offers a changing exhibition schedule each year that highlights works in its permanent collection, major traveling exhibitions and original exhibits organized in house.
