Colonial Williamsburg Painters and Paintings in the Early American South November 3-5, 2013!
The groundbreaking exhibition Painters and Paintings in the Early American South opened March 23, 2013 at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. The exhibition is the first of its kind to explore in-depth the scope of early art in this region and the myriad connections between art and artists of the early South, New England, the Middle Atlantic, and Europe. It features more than 80 works created in or for the South between 1735 and 1800, 40 of which are on loan from well-known and respected museums and private collections. Painters and Paintings in the Early American South is made possible by generous support from The Grainger Foundation of Lake Forest, Illinois. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation will sponsor a symposium November 3-5, 2013, featuring lectures on the painters who created the objects and the people they depicted. Speakers will include Graham Hood, Carlisle H. Humelsine Chief Curator Emeritus, Colonial Williamsburg, Ellen G. Miles, curator emerita, Department of Painting and Sculpture, Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Angela Mack, executive director and chief curator, Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, South Carolina, and Maurie D. McInnis, vice provost for academic affairs and professor of art history, University of Virginia. The conference begins with a keynote lecture and reception Sunday evening followed by two days of lectures, Monday and Tuesday.
