At the Art Museum

Previous post: Hotel Modera

I’m not actually expecting great things of the nearby Portland Art Museum, but Lane assures me I will be pleasantly surprised.

Oh my, he is so right!

The Native American collection is wonderful, with a large selection of very fine ethnographic pieces.

In addition, the museum has wonderful piece by modern masters like local resident Lillian Pitt and Preston Singletary.

(I swear I took pictures of Singletary’s wonderful wall installation, but I must have only done so only in my mind, as I can’t find any images anywhere.)

There are lots of other good things here too, including a small but amazing Asian collection where every piece is a revelation.

We could have stayed for hours more, but lunch with a friend entices us away.
