The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is participating in the city-wide event, ColorField.remix. In honor of the fifth anniversary of its dedication and in tribute of GW?s long tradition of supporting the artists and works of the Washington Color School, the Brady Art Gallery is borrowing Blue Column II, an acrylic on canvas from 1960 by Morris Louis who, along with Kenneth Noland, is credited with the founding of the Washington Color School. Drawing from its history of both exhibiting and collecting the works of artists such as Gene Davis, Thomas Downing, Howard Mehring, Alma Thomas, and Willem de Looper, the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery will build on the 1984 exhibition Generations of the Washington Color School, held at the Dimock Gallery. New additions to the GW Permanent Collection by de Looper and local artist Amy Lin will be shown along with a never before seen work by New York artist Rosette Bakish, who studied with Robert Motherwell.
The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery?s namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from GW in May 2004 and has served as a member of the University?s Board of Trustees.
