The Songs of Maybelle Stamper

April 22, 2006 - May 28, 2006

The Songs of Maybelle Stamper includes over eighty works on paper produced primarily while Stamper lived in the South, on Captiva Island, Florida beginning in the mid-1940s. While Stamper’s works refer to her experience of the natural world, they also spring from a deeper source, the world of imagination and dreams. In order to express spiritual and psychological truths as she saw them, she incorporated elements of abstraction and surrealism. As the artist’s mature style developed during the 1950s, her lithographs and watercolors became increasingly enigmatic and mysterious. For Stamper, life on Captiva was a mystical experience best expressed through art.
