Quiet Harmony: The Art of Mary Hiester Reid

May 4, 2002 - July 7, 2002

AWE Gallery

This exhibition provides a generous overview of Mary Hiester Reid’s career, including over sixty works that represent her principal subjects of still life, landscape, interior scenes, portraiture and figurative work. Althought she did incorporate subtle changes into her aesthetic sensibilities as the years passed, in general she maintained a dedication to 19th-century notions as the importance of achieving “effect.”

The paintings of Mark Hiester Reid are often apt examples of social and aesthetic paradigms at work in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Quiet Harmony offers insight into Reid’s career, and the fluctuating cultural and social conditions over the past century.
