  • Four works on paper recently were added to the Canton Museum of Art’s permanent collection. They can be viewed in the museum’s lobby. “Each of these acquisitions is a coup for the CMA,” says Scott Trenton, trustee in charge of collections management, who was instrumental in securing the pieces.
    “U.S. Mail” (1938), half of a diptych by William Sommer, watercolor painting. “(This) is a very important piece and easily in the top tier of William Sommer’s body of work,” Trenton says.
    “Blue Table With Plate of Cherries” (2011) by Lowell Tolstedt, colored pencil drawing. “The stunningly realistic Tolstedt is among his largest works,” Trenton says.
    “Untitled (Hearts)” (1976) by Jim Dine, watercolor painting. “We are fortunate to have found such a marvelous piece by Jim Dine, who is a major name in mid-century modern art,” Trenton says.
    “Industrial Scene” (1952) by Hughie Lee-Smith, watercolor painting. “The Hugh Lee-Smith is a rare find and a significant boost to our growing collection by African-American artists,” Trenton says.
