One Hundred Years of Harmony: Paintings by Gari Melchers 

When: Through Dec. 11
Artist Gary Melchers played an invaluable role in shaping the collection Telfair Museums as fine arts advisor from 1906 to 1916. Melchers facilitated purchase of many of the best-known works in the permanent collection, yet Telfair did not acquire a single work from him until he stepped down from his official role in 1916. To commemorate the occasion, Telfair purchased Melchers’s The Unpretentious Garden, a painting that is now one of the most beloved works in their collection. Telfair will commemorate the 100th anniversary of this acquisition with a focus exhibition presenting the treasured painting alongside additional canvases that demonstrate Melchers’s virtuosic ability to capture blissful, domestic scenes.
