Fine Art: Curating, Collecting, Creating – Glimpse Into The World Of An Arts Curator!‏

An Artist Rediscovered


Sunday, February 21, 2016
10:30am – 12:00pm
at the home of Dr. Christine Oaklander


Join us on Sunday, February 21, 2016, from 10:30 am to noon, at the home of Dr. Christine Oaklander, arts consultant, historian and curator, for a behind-the-scene glimpse into the world of a curator. Christine has begun a quest to resurrect the reputation of 19th-century Henry Grant Plumb (1847-1930). Since her discovery of a treasure trove of Plumb’s artwork and personal letters last April, she has been researching the international scope of this artist’s life and work. Last June she gave a talk at the artist’s hometown public library in Sherburne, NY and last month lectured on the arts at the National Arts Club. Much of the collection of Plumb’s work that she purchased is on exhibit in her home.

Read the article on Dr. Oaklander’s discovery in the New York Times, ‘An 1800s Painter Steps Out of the Shadows.’
