Progressive Artists Group to other first- and second-generation Indian modernists who have excelled in the graphic media to younger artists who have emerged in the last two decades.

Although deeply influenced by ltalian Renaissattce painters Leonardo da Vinci and Piero della Francesca, he was nonetheless somewhat a modernist, his portraits mingling the two traditions.

The exhibition also will feature a series of prints produced by Krishna Reddy, whose inventive color printmaking techniques have been influential and widely acclaimed. A printmaker and sculptor, Reddy's works can be found in several private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the National Gallery of Art in

Between 1915 and 1919, Brockhurst lived in lreland with his first wife Ana'is, and was introduced to Augustus John and his circle by Oliver St. John Gogarty. During the next decade, he emerged as a virtuoso etchel printing portraits of extraordinary depth, clarity and richness.

Washington, D.C. CURATOR: Jeffrey Wechsler, senior curator at Zimmerli Art Museum in New Brunswick, N.J.

By 1939, Brockhurst had come a long way from his first exhibition at the Chenil Galleries in London, organized some 20 years earlier. At the peak of this success, he emigrated to America where he lived and worked for the remainder of his life.

August 19 - November'19,2006 American Quilts at the Georgia Museum of Art

September 2 - October 29, 2006 Gr5fica Mexicana

Quilts, because of their size and fragility, can be difficult to incorporate into traditional installations of the museum's permanent collection galleries. This exhibition provides, for the first time, an opportunity to display together many of the quilts in the museum's collection. These textiles include a chintz applique quilt attributed to the Sewing Society of the First Baptist Church in Philadelphia from ca. 1847, a silk album quilt presented to Joseph Cummings in the mid-19th century, probably in New York state, and a mid-2Oth-century quilt found in Georgia.

Ten lithographs by Mexican artists in the permanent

collection will be on view in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 1S-Oct. 15). This suite of prints from the mid-1940s, Mexican Art: A Portfolio of Mexican People and Places, depicts scenes of the everyday lives of farmers, tradesmen and laborers. It was published jointly by Taller de Gr5fica Popular (People's Graphic Arts Workshop) and Associated American Artists.

October 21,2006 - January 7,2OO7 Weaving His Art on Golden Looms: Paintings and Drawings by Art Rosenbaum Paintel muralist. draftsman, as well a collector and performer of traditional American folk music, Art Rosenbaum is highly regarded throughout the Southeast for his monumental narrative tableaux. Weaving His Art on Golden Looms, Rosenbaum's first major retrospective, features representative paintings from throughout his career, including many large-scale, multi-paneled works, along with easel paintings and preparatory drawings that chart the development of his vernacular subject material and signature style.

to 1960.

Karasz's first wall hangings were representational, often whimsical, images developed through carefully shaded cotton stitches covering nearly the entire support, but she soon moved toward more abstract imagery and looser stitches in a variety of threads. Throughout her life critics praised Karasz for her skillful and unusual use of color, her creative combinations of materials and her ability to mix traditional Hungarian folk styles with a modern American aesthetic.

Constructed primarily out of woodcuts by Jay Bolotin, who also penned the score and text for the video and exhibition, this mostly sung work is believed to be the first of its kind. ln Bolotin's story, a god figure named Nobodaddy puts on a play every few epochs in "The Theater of the Western Regions."

The title for this exhibition reflects Strauss! inspiration for many of his works. After living on dairy farms, blueberry farms and even in a cypress swamp, Strauss is in tune with the world of nature. Categorizing his sculptures is a perplexing task; his work has been called contemporary, reductive, timeless, elegant and dignified. The Georgia Museum of Art will host nine of Strauss's sculptures, while nine additional ones will be on display at Stonebridge Western Treasures in Madison, Ga.

The artists worked with big ideas, big emotions, big action and on a big scale. This group of ground-breaking artists, sometimes referred to as the New york School, pushed the limits of scale, using the canvas as a field to act upon. Howevel most also created small_scale works of intense beauty and intimate size, while Iosing none of the bravura and energy.

He worked to portray American life at a period in our history that, though difficult due to the Great Depression and the coming winds of World War ll, appears today as a romantic adventure. Grabach worl<ed on views of the American city from neighborhood to urban center. Grabach expressed an interest in art at a very early age, using the windows in his house as his first canvas

Grabach worked extensively in oil and watercolor, approaching the two mediums with energy and inventiveness. It was in the latter he would produce ambitious and successful works that focus on the urban and industrial settings of the city.

The collectors have tried to acquire both positive and critical views of the South that were made during the first half of the 20th century with a few showing origins in the Etching Revival of the 1BBOs as well. Some figural prints that reflect critical perspectives on race will be on view, but most are landscape, architecture and genre scenes relating to work, entertainment and worship.
