Helen M. Turner: The Woman’s Point of View
October 9, 2010 - January 16, 2011
This exhibition was organized by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, Tennessee, and featured three Turner paintings from the Morris Museum’s permanent collection. One of America’s premier Impressionist painters, Helen Turner began painting around 1880, when the new Orleans Art Union was formed. She moved to New York City in 1895 where she studied at the Art Students League and with William Meritt Chase. Beginning in 1902, she began to exhibit widely and enjoyed great success, particularly as a painter of women in beautiful garden settings.
