Join us to hear about the exhibit at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio, Hindsight: The Art of Looking Back, with curator Andrew Richmond. 

In person space is limited. Registration is requested. Online registration is required to receive the Zoom link. 

Hindsight: The Art of Looking Back showcases the nostalgic work of the Ohio folk artists of the 1800s and 1900s, known collectively as the memory painters. These artists captured the simplicity of earlier days in rural Ohio in unassuming lines and bold color palettes. Often compared with the work of the New York-born Anna Mary Robertson “Grandma” Moses, whose paintings feature nostalgic interpretations of the New England landscape, the Ohio painters in Hindsight offer similarly unassuming visual interpretations of life in the Midwest. Included in the exhibition will be paintings by Leuty McGuffey Manahan, Paul Patton, Harold Everett Bayer, Charles Owens and Tella Kitchen. The exhibition will also include three-dimensional “memory objects,” including photographs of colonial-style interiors and gardens taken by the early 20th-century New England minister Wallace Nutting, as well as some of Nutting’s reproduction of colonial-era furniture.

Curator profile: Andrew Richmond is a native Ohioan and received his bachelor's degree in history from Kenyon College and a master's degree in American Material Culture from from the Winterhur Museum and University of Delaware. After more than a decade in the world of antiques and art auctions, he is now a certified personal property appraiser and decorative arts adviser. 

With a passion for Ohio decorative arts, Andrew has lectured and published widely on the subject. His previous exhibitions were Equal in Goodness: Ohio Decorative Arts, 1788-1860 (2011), A Tradition of Progress: Ohio Decorative Arts, 1860-1945 (2015), and An Ohio Childhood: 200 Years of Growing Up (2016, co-curated with Hollie Davis).

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
