Helen Nadler, of Tiverton, RI, widow of the widely respected American Modernist artist, Harry Nadler, has donated a significant study collection of 37 paintings to the Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries of Art at Fryeburg Academy. This collection, which will be followed with further donations, represents a lifetime of artistic endeavors exploring different styles and techniques.
Harry Nadler (1930-1990) was a prolific artist and university professor. He graduated from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and he later taught at New York University and Wesleyan University. He also served as Chairman of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of New Mexico.
During Nadler’s career he received a number of honors, including a Fulbright Grant to Spain, and over 22 solo exhibitions throughout the United States. His paintings are in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and many major university collections.
This generous gift to the Pace Galleries of Art will greatly expand the Academy’s art collection and will enhance opportunities for students and art historians to study the rich history of Mid-Twentieth Century Modernist Art. After this exhibition, it is Mrs. Nadler’s wish that the paintings be displayed throughout the campus for the enjoyment of students and faculty.
