African Art on Exhibit in the Barton Museum


Wilson, N.C. ó An exhibition of African Art will be on view in the Barton Museum beginning Thursday, Sept. 9. Showcasing objects from the collections of the Albany Museum of Art and the Barton Museum Permanent Collection, the exhibition will have items from a number of cultures representing some of the diverse peoples of Africa. While some of the objects are decorative, others were originally used as ritual objects. The exhibition will continue through October 14.


The objects on loan for the exhibition from the Albany Museum of Art in Albany, Ga., include textiles, chairs, and fertility figures from Ghana and ritual and dance masks, and heddle pulleys from the Ivory Coast. The African objects in the Albany Museum of Artís collection were gifts to the museum from Stella E. Davis whose husband was a U.S. ambassador in Africa in the 20th century. Other objects on loan from the Albany Museum were gifts to the museum from the collections of Michael Davis and Dr. Michael L. Schlossberg.


On view from Barton Museumís Permanent Collection will be objects including ritual and dance masks, ritual fertility objects, and figurines from various African cultures. The objects in the Barton Museumís Permanent Collection were gifts to the Museum from alumnus Robert E. Windham, Class of 1940. Additional gifts to the collection came later from his sons Robert E. Windham, Class of 1984 and R. Craig Windham, Class of 1986, in memory of their father.

 


"The objects from the Barton Museumís Permanent Collection are from more diverse cultures than the ones from the Albany Museum of Art," said J. Chris Wilson, director of the Barton Museum. "Together, the objects present a broad representation of the cultures of West Africa in the early 20th century. The Barton Museum objects display evidence of the transition from the indigenous African cultures to objects that show evidence of contact with Europeans by the use of materials and influences previously unused in their African culture."


The Barton Museum is open Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Museum will be closed October 11 and 12. The Barton Museum is located in the Case Art Building at the intersection of Gold Street and Whitehead Avenue on the campus of Barton College. For additional information, please contact J. Chris Wilson, director of the Barton Museum, at 399-6477 or email: cwilson*barton.edu.
