GalleryTalk March 11th
Distinguished Ohio Art scholar LAWRENCE WALDMAN will be offering a walking tour of the exhibition “FOR LOVE OF ZOAR: The Donald & Timothy Whitemyer Collection” at Tregoning & Company, this coming Saturday March 11th at 1pm in the afternoon. Refreshments will be served. Larry Waldman and Dr. Henry Adams are co-authoring the official history on Historic Zoar Village for its Bicentennial: a commune for religious Separatist German settlers in East Central Ohio founded in 1817. The Whitemyer family amassed the most important collection of artworks depicting Zoar and the rolling hills around it – including rare paintings by many important Cleveland School artists who painted there. In recent years noted Ohio artists were invited to do so as well, displaying their artworks in a juried annual exhibition. The 1st Prize winning paintings were acquired by the Whitemyers for their collection.
This exhibition celebrates the Bi-centennial of Zoar Village’s founding in 1817.
Don Whitemyer assembled a fine collection of Zoar paintings executed by German-American artists best recognized as members of the generic ‘Cleveland School’: Adam Lehr, George Adomeit, August Biehle, Ferdinand Gottwald, William Sommer –all of whom delighted in weekends and trips away from Cleveland, enjoying illicit home-brewed spirits, camaraderie, and painting in both Zoar village and the adjacent countryside. Tim continued to expand the collection he inherited from his dad with purchases from the annual Whitemyer invitational show held in Zoar, made up of paintings depicting Zoar Village. Both men had close ties to Youngstown painter and Butler Museum director Clyde Singer; there are numerous paintings, drawings and prints by this American master as well represented in the Whitemyer Collection.
