Long before the invention of television, and prior to the development of photographic film and paper in the late 1880’s, artists tried to capture images of the world in paint and pencil. Artists were revered for their ability to illustrate new frontiers, foreign lands and night or twilight scenes that few people ever experienced. In the 1860’s, James A.M. Whistler named his first twilight painting “Nocturne in Blue and Gold”, and thus began a series of foggy, evening paintings of scenes in and around London. Forty years later, in the early 1900’s Frederic Remington expounded on the concept of nighttime paintings with western scenes of horseman riding across midnight prairies, and of hunters gathered around the evening fire.
Nocturne is an exhibit of works that portray the evening hour and the night sky in various media, by Diane McGregor, Timothy Hearsum and Gary Faye.
