Coming soon to TJC Gallery: The Kindred Spirit: William Merritt Chase and His Southern Students
Over one thousand art students passed through the classrooms of America's premier Impressionist, William Merritt Chase (1849–1916), including a number of Southern painters who adopted his methods to various degrees before ultimately finding their own creative vocabularies. The Kindred Spirit is the curatorial capstone for TJC’s 2018 Graduate Fellow, Dr. Kelsey Malone. A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Malone received her PhD from the University of Missouri and is now Assistant Professor of Art History at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Dr. Malone will offer a gallery talk on the exhibition at this month’s ArtWalk on Thursday, November 15. Her remarks begin at 6:30pm at TJC Gallery.
