Pictures of noted artists coming here
Art exhibit which will open here next monday will be one of best

What promises to be the finest exhibition of art ever held at Cornell will begin Monday, May 17, in Goldwin Smith B, to last through June 5. From forty to forty-five pictures will be exhibited, each artist to be represented by one work. The greater number of the painters represented stand in the forefront of American art today. The names of George Bellows, Bryson Burroughs, Arthur B. Davies, Joseph De Camp, Ben Foster, F. C. Frieseke, Willard Metcalf, Richard Miller, William Paxton, Edward Redfield, William Ritschel, and Charles H. Woodbury, are among the foremost in American art circles.

Although the painters’ studios are somewhat emptied owing to the drain upon them by the Panama Exposition and the smaller galleries in the west who are at present having exhibitions, only three of the painters who were asked to send have declined, these being Frank Benson, Edmund Tarbell, and Emil Carlsen. The painters have shown public spirit in lending these works to Cornell, as there is no gain whatsoever for them in sending them here, Ithaca giving neither prizes nor being able to buy pictures.

Of particular local interest is the fact that three of the exhibitors have lived in Ithaca, one of them being a Cornellian. Robert Spencer, one of these men, lived for some years in Ithaca. Mr. Spencer was one if the fifty painters exhibiting in the Boston Art Club recently, and received there the gold medal and the prize of $1,000. Randall Davy, also a former Ithacan, won the second Hallgarten Prize at the Spring Exhibition of the Nation Academy of Design in New York. Truman Fassett ’05, although a young man, has been exhibiting in the Paris Salon and in prominent exhibitions of this country, and has won favorable comment from the art critics.

Great educational value will be derived from this exhibition as special care has been taken to have this exhibition represent as many different tendencies in American art of today as is possible. The exhibition will be free, and will be open every day except Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.”
