Lauren Rogers Museum of Art

Laurel, MS



Andrew Bucci

April 1 - June 4, 2000


This exhibition, organized by the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, highlights the extensive visual art career of Andrew Bucci. A native of Vicksburg, Mississippi, Andrew Bucci was influenced early in his career by teachers Marie Hull and Mary Clare Sherwood. Upon graduation in architectural engineering from Louisiana State University, Bucci served as a meteorologist in World War II, which allowed him to study at the Académie Julian in Paris. With his passion for painting fueled by his European experience, Bucci enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he received a B.F.A. in 1952 and an M.F.A. in 1954.

Bucci has spent most of his career in Washington, D.C.-- where he currently resides -- exhibiting often with the Society of Washington Artists and previously serving as President of the Washington Watercolor Society. Bucci's paintings have been viewed throughout the South for over half a century, beginning with the Mississippi Art Association in 1947 and including exhibitions at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art in 1952, 1965 and 1979. His works have been part of numerous national and regional shows at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Baltimore Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of Design and the New Orleans Museum of Art, among others.
