Exhibit features work from museum classes

Apr. 22, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Huntington Museum of Art has a lot of class, always.

Out back in the Gropius Studios, the HMOA has a never-ending offering of classes in about every kind of art medium imaginable.

This week, they'll shine a light on some of those cool creations in a new exhibit called "Studios Selections" that will feature the work of artists who have participated in recent classes and workshops in HMA's studios.

An opening reception for Studio Selections takes place from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 23. Admission is free. Recent classes and workshops have focused on pottery, watercolor, figure drawing and photography. The exhibit will run from Tuesday through Sunday, April 28.

April's Fourth Tuesday Tour at HMA begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, and will follow the opening reception for Studio Selections. April's Tuesday Tour will feature a guided tour of the three Walter Gropius Master Artist exhibits currently on display at HMA. Those exhibits include an exhibit by illustrator and educator Kate Bingaman-Burt, an exhibit by illustrator C.F. Payne and an exhibit by painter and printmaker Tom Nakashima.

Refreshments will be served during the Fourth Tuesday Tour. Admission to this event is free. Free Tuesdays at the Huntington Museum of Art are sponsored by AT&T.

The Walter Gropius Master Artist Series is funded through the generosity of the Estate of Roxanna Y. Booth, who wanted to assist in the development of an art education program in accordance with the proposals of Walter Gropius, who designed the Museum's Gropius Addition as well as the Gropius Studios. The museum is indebted to Roxanna Y. Booth's son, Alex Booth, for his participation in the concept development of the Gropius Master Artists Workshops.
