John Frederick Peto: Hidden Meanings Exhibit has been Extended through January

F_Peto_HiddenMeanings_Poster

The John F. Peto Studio Museum is proud to present a new original special exhibition, John Frederick Peto: Discovering Hidden Meanings. This exhibit brings together more than 20 original paintings from public and private collections, along with an array of historic artifacts, objects, documents, and photographs from the Museum’s archives, to examine the relationship between John F. Peto and the images that he chose to present in his paintings – - shedding light on a very spiritual and introspective man and the challenging era in which he lived.

In John Frederick Peto: Discovering Hidden Meanings, visitors will explore ways in which works by the artist present viewers with symbolic visual clues to his inner life and personal family history, as well as provide a visual commentary on post-Civil War society in America. In examining Peto’s paintings in this way, as most eloquently stated by noted Peto scholar Dr. John Wilmerding, “what we learn is that Peto’s art was his life, that his still-life arrangements were indexes of his autobiography, and that his work was about the mysterious struggle of creation.”

The exhibition was made possible with the generous support of the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders, The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, Peter R. Kellogg, E. Steven and Bernadette Doyle, Clair Cagney, and the Friends and Members of the John F. Peto Studio Museum.


John Frederick Peto: Hidden Meanings is on view from Saturday, September 26, 2015 and runs through December 13, 2015. Located at 102 Cedar Avenue, Island Heights, NJ. The museum is open for guided tours of the house and special exhibition Monday through Friday by Appointment and on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm. Admission is $10 adults, $5 children, 12 and under FREE. For information call 732-929-4949.
