More than 240 people filled the Bowdoin College Museum of Art tonight for the opening reception of "Methods for Modernism: Form and Color in American Art, 1900-1925."

Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and initiated by the Yale University Art Gallery, the show is one of seven collection-sharing exhibitions taking place at college art museums this year.

As museum director Kevin Salatino mentioned in his brief remarks, the exhibition serves to highlight a period of art history from which the college has only a few select pieces in its collection. The show is paired with a related exhibition called "Learning to Paint: American Artists and European Art, 1876-1893." Both will be on view through July 3.

I'll have more details about the exhibition and plenty of photos of the people who were at the party in this weekend's Scene & Heard section of the Maine Sunday Telegram.
