Recent Acquisitions
May 5–August 9, 2015
With this installment of Recent Acquisitions, the Palmer Museum of Art offers a selection of American and European prints that range over four centuries in date, from a woodcut of the Last Judgment that was once bound in the late fifteenth-century Nuremburg Chronicle, to a lithograph depicting a crowded Coney Island beach drawn by Mabel Dwight in 1928.

Flora and Fauna
May 19–August 16, 2015
The terms flora and fauna traditionally refer to the plant and animal life of a particular region. Here they are applied to a selection of prints and drawings, selected from the museum’s permanent collection, that feature such objects from nature as a key component of their imagery. Works in the exhibition range from fifteenth-century manuscript illuminations to watercolors by contemporary American artists.
