Butler Institute of American Art

Peter with "Sunset in the old Orchard, Montclair"

A nice surprise at the ACOPAL exhibition was discovering the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. They have a nice collection of paintings including Winslow Homer's Snap the Whip, a grand John Singer Sargent and this beautiful George Inness painting, Sunset in the Old Orchard, painted the last year he was alive. I love visiting all of the smaller art museums across the U.S. There are always more than a few treasures to delight and surprise!
