The Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, NY is extending to Brockville for the month of September, 2017.
The Brockville Arts Centre is hosting an exhibit in its lobby featuring fine reproductions of original works by Frederic Remington. The BAC is a popular venue, with the largest stage in Eastern Ontario. As a partner in bringing awareness of the Remington to the Brockville regional audience, the BAC seems like a perfect fit. The museum is grateful to Ted Abbott for putting this together, first in 2014, then in 2016 and now again.
The Brockville Arts Centre lobby walls are graced by giclee reproductions of some of the museum’s best known Remington works, including The Charge of the Rough Riders and An Old-Time Plains Fight. These were produced through extensive color correction, using hundreds of colors to match the works from which they were created. The show cases will hold reproductions of Remington sculptures in the museum’s collection. The exhibit will include a magnificent reproduction of the museum’s finest cast of Remington’s famous Broncho Buster, made from a digital scan of the original, using the lost wax bronze casting method.
