Night: Works on Paper from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art
05/10/2014 to 08/31/2014Although night scenes - or nocturnes - have been produced by artists for centuries, it was American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who made the subject famous - or perhaps more accurately, infamous. In 1877, one of Whistler's nocturnes, displayed in London, enraged critic John Ruskin who declared, "[I] never expected to hear a coxcomb as 200 guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face." In response, Whistler sued Ruskin for libel and the subsequent court case essentially became a trial about the validity of modern art. Before Whistler produced his nocturnes, the night was treated merely as background. After Whistler, however, night became a subject in itself. From narrative work by publishers Currier and Ives, to atmospheric work by Whistler, to abstractions by Ben Shahn, this exhibition - from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art - features key examples of nocturnes from the 19th century to the 1960s.

White Symphonies and Red Flowers: Color Abstraction of Natvar Bhavsar
06/07/2014 to 10/05/2014Following exhibitions at the 2009 Venice Biennale and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Natvar Bhavsar is a world-renowned abstract painter. Yet, it was Wichita Art Museum that first recognized Bhavsar's unique vision, giving him his first one-person museum exhibition in 1979. Bhavsar begins his work by laying a monumental canvas, soaked with acrylic binder, on the ground. Moving back and forth and around the canvas, the artist showers clouds of dry pigment onto the prepared surface. Bhavsar notes that his canvases invite the viewer to explore their own feelings and thoughts kindled by the pure visual language of color. Former Wichita Art Museum director Howard Wooden perhaps described Bhavsar's work best, noting, "If you have to classify him, he is an abstract expressionist but his work is unique. [His paintings] always remind me of the state of mind just before you awaken from a dream."

Night: Works on Paper from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art
05/10/2014 to 08/31/2014Although night scenes - or nocturnes - have been produced by artists for centuries, it was American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who made the subject famous - or perhaps more accurately, infamous. In 1877, one of Whistler's nocturnes, displayed in London, enraged critic John Ruskin who declared, "[I] never expected to hear a coxcomb as 200 guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face." In response, Whistler sued Ruskin for libel and the subsequent court case essentially became a trial about the validity of modern art. Before Whistler produced his nocturnes, the night was treated merely as background. After Whistler, however, night became a subject in itself. From narrative work by publishers Currier and Ives, to atmospheric work by Whistler, to abstractions by Ben Shahn, this exhibition - from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art - features key examples of nocturnes from the 19th century to the 1960s.

White Symphonies and Red Flowers: Color Abstraction of Natvar Bhavsar
06/07/2014 to 10/05/2014Following exhibitions at the 2009 Venice Biennale and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Natvar Bhavsar is a world-renowned abstract painter. Yet, it was Wichita Art Museum that first recognized Bhavsar's unique vision, giving him his first one-person museum exhibition in 1979. Bhavsar begins his work by laying a monumental canvas, soaked with acrylic binder, on the ground. Moving back and forth and around the canvas, the artist showers clouds of dry pigment onto the prepared surface. Bhavsar notes that his canvases invite the viewer to explore their own feelings and thoughts kindled by the pure visual language of color. Former Wichita Art Museum director Howard Wooden perhaps described Bhavsar's work best, noting, "If you have to classify him, he is an abstract expressionist but his work is unique. [His paintings] always remind me of the state of mind just before you awaken from a dream."

Night: Works on Paper from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art
05/10/2014 to 08/31/2014Although night scenes - or nocturnes - have been produced by artists for centuries, it was American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who made the subject famous - or perhaps more accurately, infamous. In 1877, one of Whistler's nocturnes, displayed in London, enraged critic John Ruskin who declared, "[I] never expected to hear a coxcomb as 200 guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face." In response, Whistler sued Ruskin for libel and the subsequent court case essentially became a trial about the validity of modern art. Before Whistler produced his nocturnes, the night was treated merely as background. After Whistler, however, night became a subject in itself. From narrative work by publishers Currier and Ives, to atmospheric work by Whistler, to abstractions by Ben Shahn, this exhibition - from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art - features key examples of nocturnes from the 19th century to the 1960s.

White Symphonies and Red Flowers: Color Abstraction of Natvar Bhavsar
06/07/2014 to 10/05/2014Following exhibitions at the 2009 Venice Biennale and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Natvar Bhavsar is a world-renowned abstract painter. Yet, it was Wichita Art Museum that first recognized Bhavsar's unique vision, giving him his first one-person museum exhibition in 1979. Bhavsar begins his work by laying a monumental canvas, soaked with acrylic binder, on the ground. Moving back and forth and around the canvas, the artist showers clouds of dry pigment onto the prepared surface. Bhavsar notes that his canvases invite the viewer to explore their own feelings and thoughts kindled by the pure visual language of color. Former Wichita Art Museum director Howard Wooden perhaps described Bhavsar's work best, noting, "If you have to classify him, he is an abstract expressionist but his work is unique. [His paintings] always remind me of the state of mind just before you awaken from a dream."
