The WAAM celebrates its centenary this year and as the banners on the front of our building announce, we celebrate creativity, history, community and art. In the spirit of our centennial year we have planned an exhibition that celebrates the artists of the past, present and future. An Artistic Legacy: 1+1+1 will present the work of an historic Woodstock artist, the work of their descendant and the work of a contemporary artist selected by the descendant.

An Artistic Legacy: 1+1+1 celebrates the work of eight artists/artist couples who have lived and worked in the Woodstock region each represented by a piece selected from either a private collection or a work represented in the Permanent Collection of the WAAM. The artists featured are Manuel Bromberg/Jane Dow; Robert Angeloch/Nancy Summers; Austin Mecklem/Marianne Appel; Ernest Frazier; Wendell Jones/Jane Jones; Eleanore Lockspeiser, Milton Avery and Bruce Currie/Ethel Magafan.

An Artistic Legacy: 1+1+1 is presented in conjunction with Woodstock Collects, a town-wide collaboration among Woodstock’s five arts organizations – WAAM, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, Center for Photography at Woodstock, Woodstock School of Art and the Historical Society of Woodstock, in which each organization conceptualized their interpretation of an exhibition that brings to light historic Woodstock artworks from private and institutional collections.

*Please note: the exhibition will not be on view during the period of Sept. 30 – Oct. 20.
