Learn More About This Prolific Western Artist During This Exhibit on Sunday
Discover a little-known side of a famous Western artist at a brand-new exhibit at the Sid Richardson Museum in downtown Fort Worth. “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” is a must-see collection featuring stunning landscape paintings of the artist’s homeland, as well as letters, photos and diary entries. Witness it for yourself this Sunday, July 7th.
Shifting the focus from Frederic Remington's popular Western imagery to his less familiar Eastern subjects, this special exhibition invites visitors to expand their knowledge of the context in which Remington worked, while gaining a deeper appreciation of his artistic talent.
The artwork on view, on loan from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, is from the period in Remington's life and art when he yearned to move beyond his popular success as an illustrator to critical fame as a fine artist, and when he became enamored of painting landscapes in a newer style.
Frederic Remington’s art has so profoundly shaped perceptions of the Old West that viewers only vaguely, if at all, recall that he was an Easterner born and bred. He grew up in Canton and Ogdensburg, New York—the North Country, the forested region stretching from the Adirondack Mountains across the St. Lawrence River into Canada.
