“For Love of ZOAR: The Donald and Timothy Whitemyer Collection”
OPENS T&CO’s 2017 EXHIBITION SEASON
On 17 February 2017, the exhibition “For Love of ZOAR: The Donald and Timothy Whitemyer Collection” will open as part of 78thStreet Studios 3rd Friday Open House event, from 6.00 to 9.00 PM. This exhibition had been originally scheduled to open in October 2016, but was moved to now in order to celebrate the Bi-centennial of Zoar Village’s founding in 1817.
Donald Whitemyer (1936-2009) and his son Timothy Whitemyer owned an advertising firm in Zoar Village. Located south of Canton, Ohio Zoar was settled nearly 200 years ago by German “Separatists” seeking religious freedom from the established church in Wűrtemberg, Germany –first in Philadelphia, and afterward through buying acreage in Ohio financed by the Quaker Community of Philadelphia. The Whitemyer Advertising Co. was devoted to its location and thrived there, encouraging both Whitemyers to collect art that depicted Zoar’s everyday life, its historic structures, and the beautiful rolling hills of East-central Ohio around it.
Don Whitemyer assembled a fine collection of Zoar paintings executed by German-American artists best recognized as members of the generic ‘Cleveland School’: Adam Lehr, George Adomeit, August Biehle, Ferdinand Gottwald, William Sommer –all of whom delighted in weekends and trips away from Cleveland, enjoying illicit home-brewed spirits, camaraderie, and painting in both Zoar village and the adjacent countryside. Tim continued to expand the collection he inherited from his dad with purchases from the annual Whitemyer invitational show held in Zoar, made up of paintings depicting Zoar Village. Both men had close ties to Youngstown painter and Butler Museum director Clyde Singer; there are numerous paintings, drawings and prints by this American master as well represented in the Whitemyer Collection.
Tregoning & Company is particularly proud to bring these wonderful Ohio themed paintings onto the market for the first time. Many have never been seen publically, and represent compelling values for purchasers.
T&Co presents A Thrilling Act: The Art of Anthony W. Eterovich 1916-2011
Centennial Retrospective Exhibition
Eterovich was a beloved teacher at the Cleveland Institute of Art. A half century of American Modern Art movements are reflected in his styles of painting, from American Scene Realism through Magic Realism to Photo Realism. His painting was infused with the swirling music of the American Songbook and movements of Modern Dance. Eterovich’s art has not been seen by the market for over 25 years. This retrospective is a salute to his life and work on the 100th anniversary of his birth. A catalogue of the exhibition is available for purchase at the show.
Opens this Third Friday, 15 April 2016
