The McGee Gallery brings ideas and objects together in new ways that highlight the breadth and depth of the museum’s permanent collection.
Visitors experience the gallery in three distinct exhibit spaces:
- Trees on the Mountain: Landscapes from Appalachia and Beyond, featuring late 19th- and early 20th-century American paintings, prints, and photographs,
- Encounters: Blanche Lazzell and Hans Hofmann, Mentorship and Teaching, a close look at the education and career of West Virginia native and noted American modern artist Blanche Lazzell,
- and the Deem Print Gallery, with a selection of works by women artists donated to the museum by Dr. Gina Puzzuoli.
The McGee Gallery rotates every fall and spring, offering new thematic exhibits drawn from the Art Museum’s holdings of more than 4,000 objects in diverse mediums.
