The Hunter Museum of American Art’s Original Etching Exhibit

The owner of Outdoor Adventure Training, John Adam Noll III is active in his church and community. Adam Noll and his children are members of a wide range of organizations, including the Hunter Museum of American Art, which he supports through regular contributions.

Located on the edge of the Tennessee River, the Hunter Museum of American Art focuses its collections on pieces ranging from the Colonial period to the present. Showcasing a variety of artistic mediums, including paintings, mixed media, furniture, and photography, the museum promotes the relevance, importance, and meaning of American art.

Recently, the Hunter Museum of American Art opened its temporary exhibition “Twenty Original American Etchings.” The exhibit, which will remain on display through the summer, includes pieces from such artists as Thomas Moran. All prints are from an 1884 portfolio of etchings that was created by the New York Etching Club, an organization committed to increasing the interest of the art form amongst American artists. The pieces were created largely during the American Etching Revival, during which time prints began to be seen as a more legitimate form of art rather than a technique for reproducing paintings and images.
