Congratulations to art history alum Natasha Bishop (M.A. '20) for her new position as Associate Curator at the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, NY.

Arnot Art Museum, opened 1913, is a municipal art museum located at 235 Lake Street in Elmira, New York. Its permanent collection includes 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century European paintings; and 19th- and 20th-century American art. Its 21st-century collection focuses on contemporary representational art. The building is a contributing property in the Elmira Civic Historic District. It is a rare example of a 19th-century private picture gallery that retains its original art collection. A new wing was added to the museum in 1982.

Natasha tells us, “[T]here are some hidden gems in the museum’s collection. We have a few 16th and 17th-century Flemish and Dutch works including ones by Jan Brueghel, David Teniers the Younger, [and] Van de Velde the Younger.”

Our best wishes to you, Natasha, in your new position!
