At the 56th Mid-States Art Exhibition from December 9, 2012 to March 3, 2013, the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science acquired two Kim Krause paintings titled Eleusinian Mysteries #8 and Eleusinian Mysteries #9, both courtesy of the $5,000 Evansville Museum Guild Purchase Award. The juror for the exhibition was Peter Plagens, a painter, author and art crtic for Newsweek (1989-2003). Krause is a Cincinnati native whose paintings have been included in over one hundred and twenty exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including eleven solo exhibitions.
The Evansville Museum’s permanent art collection of American and European painting, graphic works, and sculpture dating from the 16th through the 20th centuries is exhibited in thematic galleries highlighting landscape, still life, genre works, and portraiture. Three art galleries feature temporary exhibitions of important touring collections, exhibitions drawn from the Museum’s own collections, and the work of regional contemporary artists. .
