Around the Year, a new exhibition at the Fenimore Art Museum, illuminates the changing seasons and special annual celebrations with outstanding, rarely-seen examples of Tasha Tudor’s original art for greeting cards, children’s books, and holidays—from Christmas and Easter to Valentine’s Day and the Fourth of July.
As one of the most beloved artists of our time, Tasha Tudor (1915-2008) delighted an international audience with her joyful writings and enchanting images. See outstanding examples including evocative watercolors, delicate childhood drawings, original handwritten manuscripts, miniature doll cards, hand-decorated boxes and Easter eggs. Personal photographs and first-issue holiday cards are among the treasures to be enjoyed.
Tudor’s heartwarming images remind us of the simple pleasures to be savored in each passing season and the small, special moments that make up the fabric of our lives. Deeply rooted in her personal aesthetic and philosophy, Tudor’s timeless images engage the eye and the imagination, providing continued inspiration for generations of readers.
The exhibition opens October 1 and will be on display through December 31. The exhibition's co-curator, Jeanette Chandler Knazek, visits the museum on October 17 for a gallery tour as part of Food for Thought, the museum's lunch-and-lecture series. Registration is required for this exceptional program. Knazek returns on November 27 for a public lecture at 7:00 p.m.
