Slideshow Image for Focus on Painting

About This Exhibition:

Through painting, artists have a blank canvas to experiment with form and technique and to capture an array of subjects and emotions. In Focus on Painting, explore the breadth of paintings within the University’s collections where you will find perennial favorites alongside artwork that hasn’t been on display in years. 

From the traditional to the unusual, visitors will find portraits, landscapes and seascapes, abstractions, and more. These include works by well-known artists like Grant Wood and Howard Pyle as well as African American artists, European artists, and former University faculty members and alumni.
