A patron's collection


November 21, 1996|By John Dorsey

In the first half of the 20th century Alice Garrett, the mistress of Evergreen House and wife of the diplomat John Work Garrett, was a dilettante in the good sense of the word -- a lover, collector and patron of the arts who enjoyed both the art itself and the artists who created it.

One aspect of her interests is on view in a small exhibit now at Evergreen, "Alice Garrett and the American Avant Garde."

Its 15 works include paintings, drawings, prints and other works by George Grosz, John Sloan, George Bellows, Maurice Sterne, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Hilaire Hiler, Henry Varnum Poor, Gary Melchers, Miguel Covarrubias and Paul Manship.

At Evergreen House, 4545 N. Charles St., 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through March 15. Admission to the show alone is $3 adults, $2.50 students. A tour of Evergreen House including the show is $5 adults, $4 seniors, $2.50 students. For information, call (410) 516-0341.
