Looking West

This exhibit presents a stunning group of 14 paintings from the Taos art colony collected by Jack Wehle. In the late 19th century, as the old west was slowly vanishing, a diverse group of American artists were drawn to the remote New Mexico village of Taos where the old west lived on in the unspoiled landscapes and the native Pueblo peoples. The dramatic colors, mountains and ancient Pueblo culture lured these artists from their New York studios to New Mexico’s villages where they produced a distinctly American style of art and one of the few regional schools that gained international recognition.

Wild in the Country

This exhibit explores the work of the “Big Four”— Bruno Liljefors, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Carl Rungius and Bob Kuhn. These four painters changed wildlife painting, transforming the genre into an art form filled with sweeping and innovative portrayals of the natural world. We are also pleased to present works by two contemporary artists, British painter David Shepherd and Honeoye Falls, NY, sculptor Mary Taylor who bring their own styles and interpretations to wildlife art.

Forty & Fabulous

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Genesee Country Village & Museum, the museum curators gathered recent acquisitions that have never been exhibited before. On view are two galleries filled with costume, sewing tools, pressing irons and coverlets woven by western New York weavers. Some are rare, some are commonplace, but all of these objects are extraordinary for the stories they tell!
