Shown concurrently with Figure and Form from July 19- September 18, 2011.
Photographs by twenty-eight local artists are featured in "The Red Chair Visits Orange County Public Art." In June 2010, Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Director, Terry Olson issued an invitation to area photographers to choose a piece of Orange County public art to incorporate into a photograph of their own artistic interpretation. The photograph also had to include a small red chair within the composition. The chair is not only symbolic of arts audiences but is also representative of the Red Chair Project, the area's cultural information portal (www.redchairproject.com ).

The Confident Line: Henry Patrick Raleigh
May 14 - September 11, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 14 6p.m. -8p.m.
Henry Patrick Raleigh (1880-1944) spent decades navigating high society and portraying opulent life as one of America's highest paid illustrators. He took his first job as a sketch artist for the San Francisco Examiner. While there, publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst noticed his talent and encouraged him to move to New York City.
Raleigh continued newspaper work while also creating illustrations for iconic publications such as Harper's Bazaar, The Saturday Evening Post, Vanity Fair and Colliers. Some of the greatest writers of the day, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, sought after Raleigh. Fitzgerald even wrote a fan letter saying, "Honestly, I think they're the best illustrations I've ever seen!"
Raleigh led a small pack of illustrators in this time called the "Golden Age of American Illustration." Improvements in printing technology freed illustrators to experiment with color and bold draftsmanship. His "confident line" created a portrait of American aspirations.
Art and History Museums, Maitland is proud to exhibit a selection from the Raleigh Archive, courtesy of collectors Kate and Chris Raleigh.
