One Hundred Years of Harmony: Paintings by Gari Melchers 

When: Aug. 26-Dec. 11 2016
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.
