Paul Keene: Post War Explorations in Painting @ Leland Galleries, Georgia College

September 3rd, 2017

Plans for the current exhibition, Paul Keene: Post War Explorations in Painting began with the discovery of paintings stored in the attic of the Keene home. Hidden way for decades, these works are a rich record of Paul’s early career. His GI Bill opportunity to work in Paris was soon followed by a John Hay Whitney Fellowship which supported a two year residency in at the Centre d’Arte, Port-au-Prince, Haiti (1951-1953).
The exhibition celebrates a too little known period of Paul’s career. The paintings are hybrids of Paul’s exposure to the early Modern & Contemporary art he found in Paris and the authentic West African cultural traditions he sought in Haiti. Gallery shows upon his return from both sojourns sold out thanks to the astute Philadelphia collector and philanthropist, Ben Bernstein. Georgia College’s Leland Galleries presentation is on thru 15 September 2017.

Morris Blackburn: Prints and Paintings in Process @ Palmer Museum of Art

January 7th, 2017

A new exhibition exploring the relationships between paintings, print making and process Blackburn made in the 1940s.

is organized by the Palmer’s Patrick McGrady.  It runs from Jaunary 17 to April 30.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Morris Blackburn attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he studied with, among others, Arthur B. Carles, one of the country’s leading proponents of modernism. The city remained his home throughout his career as an artist and as a teacher, a profession for which he was equally known and admired. Starting in the 1930s, Blackburn offered courses in painting and printmaking first at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art (now the University of the Arts), then the Tyler School of Art, at Temple University, and finally at his alma mater, PAFA, where he taught from 1952 until his death in 1979.

Blackburn’s affiliation with Carles, with whom he studied privately for a number of years following his graduation from PAFA, led to a healthy inclination toward abstraction. This propensity was further enhanced through his participation in the monthly workshops run by experimental printmaker Stanley William Hayter, starting in 1945, at the Print Club (today known as the Print Center). The majority of the drawings, prints, and paintings in the exhibition in particular demonstrate the discipline the Hayter experience brought to Blackburn’s creative process.
