Few artists throughout history have captured the essence of the natural world so vividly and with such passion as Walter Inglis Anderson (1903–1965) of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. The Walter Anderson Museum of Art, founded to preserve, collect, and interpret his works, is offering a comprehensive traveling exhibition featuring some of the finest examples from the three periods of Anderson’s creative life. This exhibition of the artist’s works was the keystone to the Centennial Celebration of Anderson’s birth and has travelled to major museums across North America since 2003. Featuring sixty works in watercolor, oils, ceramics, blockprints, and woodcarvings, this exhibit can be tailored to suit your venue. Exhibition fees range from $5,000 to $10,000 based upon exhibition running length. Please contact Mattie Codling, Curator, for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available beginning March 2017 For an artist who was shunned by society, Walter Anderson depicted the people around him with startling love and compassion. The works in Painting People reveal this love in undeniable form. Anderson’s art records the nuances of human individuality and interaction with the same attention to detail and joyful exuberance that he utilized to memorialize natural flora and fauna of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. When one observes works there can be little doubt that the artist’s love for all creatures included his fellow human beings. Painting People consists of forty watercolors, drawings, and oil paintings. The exhibition fee is $4,000 for venues of eight weeks or longer.
