ART OF OCEANIA

MAY 23 - JULY 12, 2009

For those of you who cannot visit the gallery, we include some images of the installation. You can find links to the objects themselves below.

 

OCEANIC ART

I acquired the majority of these objects in 1989 (a year before I opened Hamill Gallery) from the Nichols Gallery in Boston. Since I have been focused on African art, these pieces have been housed in the gallery but never exhibited. Over the years, a number of visitors suggested that I make them at least visible, so we have decided, finally, to make them available.
