“Priestess,” a painting by Kevin W. Kennedy Professor of Art Katharine Kuharic, was recently added to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) permanent collection. The painting is included in “The Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women,” acquired through a gift to PAFA. The Collection comprises approximately 400 works of art in all media spanning the 1910s to the present.
Kuharic’s painting will be included in a traveling exhibition of “The Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women” opening in Philadelphia at PAFA November 17, 2012 – April 14, 2013.
According to the PAFA website, its museum “is internationally known for its collections of 19th- and 20th-century American paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Its archives house important materials for the study of American art history, museums, and art training.”
