    Have You Heard?

    Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) has a new artists' show-place. Dedicated to the exhibition of contem- porary work in all media, the Kenmore Galleries of 122 South 18th Street recently opened its doors to the public. In addition to showing creative work in the more familiar media the gallery will also devote permanent gallery space for the exhibition of fine photography.

    Initially, group shows of work by all of the artists affiliated with the gallery are being presented by the co-directors, Marjorie Rubin and Harry Kulowitz. Later, one-man shows will be held. At the first of these introductory shows I was especially impressed by the paintings of Howard Goldstein, the paintings and prints of Robert Cariola, the graphics of Harold Altman, and the impeccable photographs of Paul Strand and Walter Rosenblum.

    Two much needed services offered by the gallery should be of particular interest to practicing artists in the Delaware Valley area. The first is a photographic department which will make color slides and black/ white prints of art work at a nominal charge. The other is a frame rental service which has been estab- lished to allow painters to rent frames for exhibitions regardless of their gallery affiliation.

    At the request of President Kennedy, the Archivist of the United States, Dr. Wayne Grover, has mounted an exhibition of naval prints collected by the late president of our country, Franklin D. Roosevelt. The exhibit is now on display at the National Archives Building in Washington, D. C. and will be there until the end of the year. The show is then to go on tour to several cities in the United States, and afterwards, perhaps abroad.

    The 54 prints, mostly engravings, in The Brooklyn Museum Exhibition, VIEWS OF LONDON, show the great diversity and artful sensationalism of that great 18th century satirist, designer and draughtsman, Wil- liam Hogarth.

    The earliest print in the Exhibition is, THE LOTTERY, completed by the artist in 1721, when he was 24 years old; the last print, THE BENCH was completed the day before the artist's death on October 25, 1764. Works of the prolific genius from the years between include selections from A RAKE'S PROG- RESS, HUDEBRAS, INDUSTRY AND IDLENESS, A HARLOT'S PROGRESS and FOUR TIMES A DAY.

    Only pictures created by Hogarth himself, and not those completed in collaboration with other artists, may be seen in the show, which will be on exhibition in the second floor Print Galleries through January 27, 1963. If this is not one of the most promising shows I've seen this year, then I don't know what is.

  • The permanent collection of the Everhart Museum in Scranton (Pennsylvania) has been enriched by two recent acquisitions: "Shrimps" by Henri Matisse and

    "Reclining Woman" by Chaim Soutine. The paintings were presented to the museum by the Adele R. Levy Fund which plans to distribute additional works from the collection of the late Mrs. Levy to other museums as well.

    Shows Worth Seeing The Honolulu (Hawaii) Academy of Arts will

    feature three shows from November 8 to December 9: Artists of Hawaii-1962 Honolulu Printmakers Annual Paintings by Yseng-Yu-ho

    From November 29 to the end of the year, the Academy will show "Disappearing Honolulu Archi- tecture."

    An exhibition of drawings by Edward Lear, mark-

    ing the 150th anniversary of the birth of the artist. are now on view and until the end of December at the Huntington Art Gallery of San Marino (California).

    Also out there in the west, but further to the north, the Seattle (Washington) Museum has three interest- ing exhibits set for November 29 to January 6, 1963:

    48th Northwest Artists Annual 18th Century Art (from the museums permanent

    collection) Objects illustrated in the 1963 Engagement Cal-

    endar The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston (Texas) will

    be offering visitors the "Southwest Painting and

    Sculpture Exhibition" featuring recent work by artists local to the region from December 7 to January 20.

    From November 11 until December 9, the Art Commission of the State of Louisiana will show the "20th Annual State Art Exhibition" at the Old State

    Capitol Building in Baton Rouge. Since October and until November 25 the National

    Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C. will show "Old Master Drawings from Chatsworth."

    The 114 magnificent drawings which comprise the exhibition are on loan from one of the finest private art collections in England. Selected by Mr. A. E. Popham, for many years Keeper of Prints and Draw- ings at the British Museum, they illustrate the art of drawing in Europe from the Renaissance to the end of the 17th century.

    Chatsworth is one of the most famous of the great British country houses, and only on two occasions has an exhibition representing its wealth of drawings been attempted. Both were in England.

    Perhaps the outstanding feature of the collection is the series of landscape drawings by Rembrandt, ten

    of which are to be shown. Among the 47 other artists

    represented are Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Giulio

    Romano, Mantegna, Correggio, Parmigianio, Prima- ticcio, Veronese, Rosso, Bruegel, Van Dyck, Rubens, Diirer, Holbein, and Inigo Jones.

    Following the exhibition's appearance at the Na- tional Gallery, it will travel to the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City (New York) and will be on view there from December 4 through January 5.

    Visitors to the Boston University Art Gallery (Massachusetts) may see an exhibition of paintings by Julian Levi between November 3 and 24.

    From now and through December 30, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse (New York) will show their "22nd Ceramic National Exhibition." This is the first stop of a two-year traveling circuit that will take the 22nd edition of this ranking competitive event in the ceramics field (which originates biennially in Syracuse) to museums around the country.

    Two shows should surely be looked into this month if you are in or near the Cincinnati (Ohio) Art Museum. Currently, and until December 1 they are

    showing an exhibition organized by the St. Paul

    Gallery titled, "Drawings-U.S.A." From November 27 through January 6 they will feature the "17th Annual Exhibition by Artists of Cincinnati and Vi- cinity" which will include paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture by artists living within a seventy-five mile radius of the city.

    A Matter of Opinion This column salutes the outstanding idea of the Print Council of America in showing identical versions of "American Prints Today-1962" in various museums

    simultaneously. From November 6 until December 8 the following locations offer the show of graphic work:

    Albany Institute of History and Art (New York) Baltimore Museum of Fine Art (Maryland) Cleveland Museum of Art (Ohio) Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (Colorado) Detroit Institute of Art (Michigan) Currier Gallery of Fine Art (New Hampshire) Ringling Museum of Art (Sarasota, Florida)

    A second salute goes to the many museums across the country that offer special art classes for children and adults. Unfortunately, some, here and there, do not. If you think they should, and the reasons why ought to be obvious, why not let them know what you think. The rumble of voices by people who ca
