Portraits of Southern Artists by Jerry Siegel
September 22, 2012 - December 2, 2012
A selection of Jerry Siegel’s black-and-white portraits of thirty-three iconic Southern artists—all of whom are represented by works in the Morris Museum collection—were displayed in the Morris Museum’s Coggins Gallery. Siegel studied at the University of South Alabama and the Art Institute of Atlanta. While successfully maintaining a commercial photography studio in Atlanta since the 1980s, he found his passion in traveling the Southeast to capture the true essence of painters, sculptors, photographers, and printmakers. Winner of the first Artadia Award in Atlanta in 2009, Siegel has been honored by solo exhibitions of his work at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (New Orleans, Louisiana); the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (Atlanta); the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts (Montgomery, Alabama); and the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art (Auburn, Alabama), among others. His work is in private and corporate collections throughout the Southeast.
