Currently on view through December 18th at the Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State University is the exhibition RECENT ACQUISITIONS: GIFFORD BEAL IN ROCKPORT. As stated on the museum website,
"The impetus for the exhibition is a painting by Beal that was acquired in 2014 with funds raised by the Friends of the Palmer Museum of Art, titled After the Storm, from c. 1930, in which lobster fishermen scour the shore for traps and buoys that have been scattered by a gale. The painting is also accompanied by a selection of prints and drawings featuring images of Rockport’s fishing industry, all recent gifts from the estate of Gifford Beal made through the efforts of Kraushaar Galleries, which gave the artist his first solo exhibition in 1920 and thereafter served as his dealer for the remainder of his career."
