Winter Dreams: Works of Art from the Permanent Collection
November 21, 2015 - January 31, 2016
The present exhibition features more than forty little seen works of art—paintings, drawings, photographs, and three-dimensional objects by more than a dozen twentieth-century Southern artists. Eldridge Bagley and Jack Stoddart are represented by works featured in previous Morris Museum exhibitions, while other artists’ works have never been shown here before. There are beautiful winter scenes such as the impressionistic work by Julia Alice Collins, Landscape—Snow in Winter. Imagination certainly informs the work of all the folk artists here. Purus Country Store, Calhoun, Georgia, by Alpha J. Frise, exemplifies that. Jack Stoddart’s photograph Winter Barn, shot near his home on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee, captures winter—a season most Southerners would prefer to experience through their living room windows—at its most sublime in that part of the South.
