The Schepis Museum
106 Main Street, Columbia
This exhibit is a wonderful showcase of a vivid collection of art from Marie Keahey. All are invited to come and explore this collection, open now until Feb 28th. This exhibit is not just a simple showcase, it is a showcase of passion for the arts - in all forms. The development of an art collection can be seen often as a visual journal - a narrative in art form. Thus, a collection made over a lifetime can been seen not just as a beautiful collection of independent pieces, but also a punctuated autobiography of the collector. This revealing look at the collector is both intimate and public, concealed and conspicuous. In Her Own Words, The Private Collection of Marie Keahey, the Schepis Museum presents such an artistic narrative as told by the collector – Marie Keahey. This narrative is told through works that cross the continuum of culture, geography and time – from the unknown and obscure to the work of royalty. Join us for an exquisite exploration of this collection of ceramics, sculpture, paintings, textiles and much more!
