OGDENSBURG — After touring the country, more than 50 works from the Frederic Remington Art Museum are back.
Although not all of the 50 prints and three silver sculpture reproductions are on display, Curator Laura A. Foster has selected 20 pieces from the traveling exhibit to be shown in the Richard E. Winter Gallery at the museum, 303 Washington St.
"It's kind of a survey," Ms. Foster said about the show. "It's a fun thing to do, to share it, now that it's returned home."
The exhibit was organized by the museum in 2005. The works traveled to 11 museums in nine states and were a big success, Ms. Foster said.
The prints on display were made from 1889 to 1908 and are reproductions of original paintings from the artist's early work for The Century, Harper's and Collier's magazines.
"There are some examples of paintings that only exist through the prints because Remington burned the original works," Ms. Foster said.
"He produced over 3,000 flat works in his life and most of those were published illustrations," she said. "We want to show Remington in the way that his contemporaries had appreciated his work."
The gallery exhibit will be on display until Oct. 24.
