Drawing the Soul: A Collection of
Portraits by Jon Murrill

Jan 12 through Feb 23, 2019

Jon Murrill provides a contemporary perspective on the human spirit of the working class through the use of expression. Working in charcoal, Murrill captures photorealistic images, allowing his audience to interact with the personality of each portrait. His work does not represent an idealistic beauty, but rather, the spirit of working class individuals and the depth of character that they each possess.

Artists as Art: Photographic Portraits
Mar 9 through Apr 27, 2019

Robert Frank photographs Beat poet Allen Ginsberg hugging a tree, Imogen Cunningham poses Alfred Stieglitz standing in front of a flower painting by Georgia O’Keeffe, and Barbara Morgan captures modern dancer Martha Graham as she stretches her body into a dramatic form; these images convey more than a mere likeness of the artists portrayed. Instead they highlight the collaboration between photographer and subject when both are artists seeking to convey a unique persona.

Artists as Art: Photographic Portraits is on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Nightfall: Prints of the Dark Hours
Mar 9 through Apr 27, 2019

This exhibition explores nocturnes–images that evoke the night. Luminous apparitions of the divine, dazzling fireworks, lamplit urban streets, and twilight’s soft glow over the natural landscape are all subjects that have intrigued and challenged printmakers across the centuries.

Nightfall: Prints of the Dark Hours is on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
