Fritz Vogt Drawings: A Sense of Place

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 30 2021

Between 1890 and 1900 itinerant folk artist Fritz G. Vogt roamed the turnpikes and dirt roads of five New York Counties west of Albany [Montgomery, Schoharie, Otsego, Fulton, and Herkimer]. By the time of his death on January 1, 1900, Vogt had created more than 200 distinctive architectural portraits featuring farms, homes, and businesses. The result is a window into the artist’s personal perspective and his patron’s motivations, as well as a striking representation of the region’s architecture, commerce, and social history.

Price: $9 for adults, $6.50 for students and seniors
