The Cameron Art Museum’s collection of fine arts, crafts, and design includes works of historical and contemporary importance by regional, national and international artists and artisans. A growing strength of the collection is works on paper. The permanent collection houses works by Mary Cassatt, Ando Hiroshige, Saul Steinberg, Isamu Noguchi, Phillips Guston, Leonard Baskin and Robert Gwathmey, to name a few.
CAM also has a strong holding of works by North Carolina artists including Romare Bearden, Minnie Evans, Claude Howell, Elliott Daingerfield, Maud Gatewood, Billie Ruth Sudduth and Jugtown Pottery.
Only a small portion of collection works may be on view at any given time; works in the permanent collection are often used to create rotating thematic exhibitions. Please call ahead if you are traveling to see a specific work of art.
