    Press Releases ?
    • January 18, 1927: The Brooklyn Museum announces the public opening on Saturday, January 29th, of a large exhibition of water colors, pastels and drawings which will occupy all of the gallery space in the west wing of the Museum's art department. The Museum's interest in this branch of art is well known and is attested by its large permanent display of water colors and by the fact that the coming exhibition is the fourth of its kind which it has organized. The exhibit sets out to show the present state of the art of water color and, with a few exceptions, follows the Museum's usual custom of not showing the work of artists who have been represented in the preceding show. The catalogue lists the names of over one hundred artists who are represented by more than six hundred exhibits. A considerable number of works of artists who paint in California and the Southwest are included and a number of Brooklyn artists are also represented.

      In addition to this exhibition a section of the Museum's European gallery will be devoted to a special showing of a group of about twenty oil paintings by the Swedish artist, Gustaf Adolph Fjaestad. Fjaestad was born at Stockholm, December 22, 1868, and studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts there. He has exhibited at Paris, Munich, Vienna, Rome and London and was awarded the Grand Prix at Paris and decorated by the King of Bavaria. His work has been almost entirely concerned with the painting of Swedish rural landscapes.

      The public opening of these exhibitions will be preceded by a private view for Museum members and their friends on Friday evening, January 28th, and the exhibition will continue on view until February 28th.

    "Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
