Augusta Collects Southern Art
February 3, 2018 - April 29, 2018
Augusta Collects included work by artists from every part of this larger South, including a traditional landscape painting by Texas artist Porfirio Salinas, Jr., and an abstract vision of the landscape of coastal South Carolina by Brian Rutenberg. Of local interest were paintings by two early directors of the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Horace Talmage Day and Elizabeth Panknin Wright, as well as paintings by some of Augusta University’s William S. Morris Eminent Scholars in Art—Philip Morsberger, Tom Nakashima, and Cheryl Goldsleger. Such Morris Museum favorites as Jonathan Green and Edward Rice were also represented here, as were a few surprises, both historical and contemporary.
