The artwork of eminent Syracuse artist, Fernando A. Carter (1855-1931), is now on display in OHA’s in second floor gallery. Fernando Carter: The Man & His Artwork draws from OHA’s large collection of landscape and portrait paintings, as well as Carter’s sketchbooks, to present this artist’s creative art style. Fernando Carter’s subjects range from the visages of some of Onondaga County’s prominent citizens to the natural beauty of the area.
Along with being a very talented artist, Fernando Carter was an art instructor at Syracuse University and the second director of the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts. He also founded the Syracuse Friends of American Art, a group of local art enthusiasts who helped to purchase works of art for the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts.
The exhibit will be on display from September 2023 to September 2024.
