Distilled: The Narrative Transformed

November 11 - December 13, 2015

Inspired by place and process, Herbert's work is a spirited exploration in color and line derived from the sights, sounds, and energies of the two principal cities – Memphis and New York – in which this body of work was created. Graffiti-like gestures scrawl atop digital prints, which are collaged and integrated into his paintings. In this 30-year survey, we follow Pinkney Herbert on his transformative journey from the narrative into abstraction.

Life in the City: The Art of Joseph Delaney

This exhibition includes 72 works of art from the permanent collection of the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture. 

Showcased is Joseph Delaney's mastery of a wide variety of media, ranging from oil paintings, to pen and ink drawings, to charcoal drawings, to pastel portraits and watercolors. The exhibition also explores Joseph's love for the urban environment and his interest in depicting the human figure as participant within the built environment of New York City.


Richard J. LeFevre's Civil War Series

This exhibition features watercolor paintings depicting the major engagements of the American Civil War. The artist, Richard LeFevre, was himself a Civil War reenactment soldier.

Salvador Dail: The Divine Comedy

From 1951-1960, the artist Salvador Dali worked to complete a suite of watercolors illustrating Dante's Divine Comedy to celebrate the 700th birthday of the Italian poet. Later, master printers would work to generate wood blocks to reproduce and publish Dali's original paintings.

This is the complete series of Dali's 100 prints illustrating Dante's Divine Comedy.

Through the Lens of Ed Westcott: A Photographic History of World War II's Secret City

In 1942, the Army Corps of Engineers relocated James Edward Westcott to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and assigned him the task of official photographer for the Manhattan Project - a massive wartime effort to produce the first atomic bomb. As secrecy of the project was paramount, the "atomic" city was fenced, and communication with the oustide world was limited. What is more, no cameras were allowed inside its boundaries.

Thus, Westcott became not only the official phtographer for the Manhattan Project, but he also became the sole photographer of the social and recreational events of Oak Ridge. It is only through Westcott's photographs that the visual history of Oak Ridge can be appreciated.

Walter Haskell Hinton

Walter Haskell Hinton (1886-1980) was an American Illustrator during the "Golden Age" of illustration from about 1910 through the 1940s. Over the course of his career, Hinton generated ad images for "The Saturday Evening Post," John Deere, Fairmont Railways, Washington National Insurance Company, Austin-Western, and Orange Crush soda. He also created the cover images for many issues of "Outdoor Life," "Sports Afield," and Western pulp magazines. This exhibition focuses on his work-in-progress watercolor illustrations for these popular magazine covers.


The 75th Anniversary American Abstract Artists Print Portfolio, a exhibition consisting of 48 archival digital prints. AAA published its first portfolio in 1937. It consisted of 30 lithographs and, in lieu of a catalog, accompanied the group's first exhibition, which was held at the Squibb Gallery in New York City. In addition to that first portfolio and this 75th Anniversary portfolio, only two others have been published—one commemorating the organization's 50th anniversary, and one for the 60th. All prints are 9.75" x 12.75"
