On view through Fall 2022
Columbia Museum of Art
Columbia, South Carolina
Two new exhibitions “Amanda McCavour: Bright Little Day Stars” and “In the Shadow of Monet: Giverny and American Impressionism” are now on view this summer at the Columbia Museum of Art.
“Amanda McCavour: Bright Little Day Stars” is on view through October 2, 2022
Poet Martha Lavinia Hoffman describes flowers as “bright little day stars scattered all over the earth.” Artist Amanda McCavour lifts those stars up into the air in this exhibition, creating hovering constellations of colorful flora.
“In the Shadow of Monet: Giverny and American Impressionism” is on view through September 4, 2022
In 1883, French Impressionist painter Claude Monet settled in Giverny, a village nestled at the confluence of the Seine and Epte rivers. This is the scene of the CMA’s beloved Monet landscape painting. Glimpses of the new, still-radical Impressionist style inspired many American artists to go study in France where the movement was developing in real-time.
