Heartland Memories: The Prints of Jackson Lee Nesbitt
August 27, 2005 - October 9, 2005
This exhibition examines the length of printmaker Jackson Lee Nesbitt’s career. It includes the first etching he produced as a professional artist in 1935 as well as the last, in 1993. Nesbitt’s mentors included Thomas Hart Benton, one of the leading artists in the regionalist movement, characterized by realistic depictions of everyday scenes from the American Midwest and Deep South. Nesbitt created numerous prints commissioned by steel, manufacturing, and oil companies in addition to his many genre etchings.
