From the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation
June 25 - September 17, 2017
Charles R. Wood Gallery and Whitney-Renz Gallery

Ellsworth Kelly created Diagonal with Curve XII, Blue #611 for his friends, Werner Feibes and James Schmitt. In conjunction with the opening of the Feibes & Schmitt Gallery, this exhibition examines Kelly’s experimentation with curved fields of color, from tight ellipses and shapes with rounded corners to broad arcs and segments. Many of these geometric shapes derived from his simple line-drawn images of nature. Prints from his Plant Series will form a small companion exhibition in the Whitney-Renz Gallery. All of the works come from the extensive collection of Ellsworth Kelly prints belonging to the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon.


a shared legacy: Folk Art in America

Organized by Art Services International
October 8 - December 31, 2017
Charles R. Wood Gallery

Until the late nineteenth century, American homes were decorated with paintings, furniture, and decorative pieces made by regional artists, few of whom had received any formal artistic training. Their work was colorful and creative, and often combined traditional forms and motifs with innovative materials and functions. Communities like the Pennsylvania Germans celebrated their European origins by perpetuating Old Country types of furniture and decoration. This exhibition celebrates the nation’s vibrant folk art traditions in the era before the rise of the professionally trained artist.

The exhibition is drawn from the Barbara L. Gordon Collection and is organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandria, Virginia.
