Selections from the Permanent Collection

Nissley Gallery

February 9–April 30, 2021

The Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College is pleased to present a selection from our permanent collection in its refreshed Nissley Gallery. The museum’s permanent collection gallery is named in honor of Thomas W. Nissley ’55 and his wife Emily Baldwin Nissley, who generously provided funding for its care and programming. Routinely refreshed, this gallery is a broad sampling from the museum’s various core collections, including many artworks making their exhibition debut. The collection is evolving and we are deeply indebted to the many generous donors who have helped it grow into a robust teaching resource that can be used to engage with our diverse student population and greater Lancaster community. New works on view include a stain painting by Vivian Springford, a scroll by Taki Katei depicting the Eight Immortal Figures, and a landscape painting by Thomas Addison Richards that was generously gifted to the museum by the late Dr. David Schuyler.
