In revisiting the idea behind last year’s Mining the Store exhibition, the Palmer Museum of Art has once again delved the depths of the permanent collection to retrieve a number of drawings and watercolors by American artists that have not been on view in quite some time. Works by familiar figures, among them Reginald Marsh, David Levine, and David Burliuk, are coupled with marvelous images by individuals whose names may have not yet been encountered by most museum visitors.
