KATONAH, N.Y. -- Although the days will get shorter and cooler this month, there are plenty of indoor activities at the Katonah Museum of Art, as three of its exhibits will continue weeks into the fall.
One of the exhibits is titled "Inside the Outside: Five Self-Taught Artists from The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation." The works, which are displayed at KMA's Righter and Beitzel galleries, are by Bill Traylor, Thornton Dial, Nellie Mae Rowe, James Castle and Willie Young. Neither of the artists had formal training and took to the craft later in life, according to the exhibit's overview.
Louis-Dreyfus, who is a prolific art collector , was on hand for a packed special reception for the exhibit held this summer, which also included top KMA officials. The exhibit runs until Oct. 11.
Outside the gallery, visitors can view the work of Chris Larson, who made a replica of the architect Edward Larrabee Barnes' modernist home and propped it up in a way that, according to the description, is evocative of Katonah's famous relocation.
The Larson exhibit is also scheduled to remain on display until Oct. 11.
Finally, a large sculpture from artist Allan McCollum is still available for public viewing. The sculpture is a large likeness of a Chinese ginger jar and is placed on a plinth, according to the description. The exhibit, which is called "Perfect Vehicle," is displayed on the museum's south lawn and can be seen until Oct. 11.
