Morris Museum of Art Presents Exhibitions of Art of Wolf Kahn and Robert Gwathmey


Wolf Kahn: Southern Landscapes. A large painting commissioned for the Morris Museum of Art forms the centerpiece of an exhibition spotlighting pastel sketches and paintings completed in the Augusta area by the noted American colorist and landscape artist. A full-color catalogue written by Deputy Director J. Richard Gruber accompanies the exhibition. Closes May 2, 1999. This exhibition will then travel to the Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina, and will be on exhibit during the annual Spoleto Festival.

Robert Gwathmey: Works from Southern Collections. A focused exhibition organized by the Columbus (Georgia) Museum, co-sponsored by the Morris Museum of Art and drawn from Southern collections, explores the work of the Virginia-born artist and long-time teacher at the Cooper Union in New York. Gwathmey is noted for his use of precise contours that outline graphic shapes in vivid colors and his symbols of broad social commentary. Closes May 9, 1999.
