Permanent Collection | Hartford-Tandstad Galleries

The Hartford-Tandstad Collection came to the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art in 2014, featuring approximately 200 works of art. The collection includes drawings, paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts, most of which date primarily from the late Renaissance through the 19th century. A selection of works is housed in three galleries focused on themes of Global Encounters, Approaching Nature, and Dialogues with Power. Additional works from the collection are featured in rotating exhibitions.

Building on Survivance, a semi-permanent exhibition curated by students in Dr. Emily Moore's ART 317: Native North American Art class, annual reinstallations of the gallery add additional works by modern and contemporary artists from the United States and from Latin America.

With a creative diversity spanning over 50 countries and thousands of cultures, arts from the African continent offer a window into unique, local contexts and stylistic conventions. These works promote the identity of the artists and cultures from which they originate and highlight the visual differences found from one region to the next. The African Gallery features highlights from the collection, including works in traditional materials and techniques like ceramics, beadwork, carved wood, metalwork, and textiles, as well as contemporary media and styles.
