MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - An exhibit about a gallery that marketed art to middle class American homes beginning in the 1930s is going on display next month at Kansas State University before heading to three other museums.

Touted as the first critical overview of the Associated American Artists, the exhibit opens Sept. 15 at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. The Kansas museum has a large collection of AAA prints, and a curator there helped develop the exhibit.

The AAA was known for its mail delivery sales. Regionalist artists Thomas Hart Benton and John Steuart Curry were among the painters it promoted.

The exhibit also will appear at the Grey Art Gallery at New York University, the American Textile History Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts, and Syracuse University Art Galleries in New York.
