7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Be the first to see the Katonah Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, ICELAND: Artists Respond to Place, at a 1st Look party on June 28 at 7pm. Mingle with friends, watch ice be transformed into art, enjoy Iceland-inspired hors d’oeuvres, music and cocktails.
The austere, beguiling landscape of Iceland functions as muse and material for its artists. Innately attuned to dramatic physical changes and extreme solar rhythms, Icelandic artists carry within them a heightened awareness of the environment as a dynamic living entity. This is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus exclusively on the rich and complex relationship of contemporary Icelandic artists to the singular geography of their island nation.

The Katonah Museum of Art (KMA), located at 134 Jay Street (Route 22) in Katonah, NY, is a cultural destination offering changing exhibitions that feature art from all cultures and time periods. The Museum attracts visitors from Westchester and Fairfield Counties, as well as the larger tri-state region. Located at the northern end of Katonah’s “Museum Mile” just off of Route 22, and neighboring John Jay Homestead and Caramoor, the Katonah Museum of Art is a two-minute taxi ride from the Katonah Metro North train station.
The KMA offers lectures, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience, as well as innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. The Learning Center is an interactive space where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Among the many programs for children and families are Stroller Tours, Family Days, Saturday Story Time, Schools Out/Arts In vacation day programs, and art classes for children ages three through twelve. The Museum’s innovative Arte Juntos/Art Together program for new immigrant families has been recognized as a model program by the federal government.
The KMA mounts ten exhibitions per year in its main galleries, Sculpture Garden, and Learning Center. Influential modernist architect Edward Larrabee Barnes designed the 10,000 square-foot building.
