Fall is often an exciting time for galleries and museums world wide - a time when new art is installed and exhibitions on view.
This fall there are many regional and large museums with some fabulous exhibits - too many to name here - so we are highlighting a few that may tickle your fancy.
A regional group show in CA hosted by the Getty Foundation. There will be 68 exhibits in nearly all of the art institutions between Santa Barbara and San Diego - all focused on regional artists. It is called Pacific Standard Time - and the link will show you all the exhibits.
The Met in NYC is about to open 19,000 square feet displaying Arab Treasures and Art spanning 13 centuries. We are planning a retreat to the MET in 2012, and we will be sure to see this during our visit.
London's National Gallery will be showcasing 69 of Leonardo da Vinci's works. It begins Nov 9 and runs until Feb. 5. 2012. While this was not one of our sites for a retreat in 2012, we would very much like to see these surviving works, many of which have not been in the public.
If you would be interested in joining Art Needlepoint in November or in January in London, please let us know so we may reserve an appropriate number of tickets.
In Cleveland (and then later in January 2012 at the MET), Chinese Art in the Age of Revolution opens on Oct 16th.
