This exhibition is comprised of 100 images on paper by over 80 artists from 125 years of western art - 1850 through 1975, a time which comprises one of the most creative and changing periods in the society and culture of the west. The material is drawn from the Plattsburgh State Art Museum's permanent collection where it was acquired by gift from Regina Slatkin, Martin Ackerman, Bette and Ed Brohel, Sally Kent Gorton, Mel and Barbara Lichtig, and purchases by the Plattsburgh State University Student Association and the Plattsburgh State Art Museum Docents.

The purpose of these juxtapositions is to set up connections and contrasts, illuminating and making real some of the theories and interpretations of the period. We are fortunate to have Sue Lezon, Assistant Professor of Photography at Plattsburgh State, select the photography from the Museum's limited holdings while consulting on the general place of the photograph in the structure of the exhibition.

-Edward R. Brohel, Curator
