Event Description
Liminality, Luminosity, and the Everyday: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Painting Collection features over 40 paintings selected from the CU Art Museum’s growing permanent collection of over 240 paintings including 19th and 20th century American and Mexican paintings by artists such as George Inness, Jasper Cropsey, Henry Varnum Poor, Marsden Hartley, John Sloan, Eve Drewelowe, Valetta, Robert Henry, Elizabeth Murray, Roland Reiss, Judy Rifka, Alan Shields, Peter Dean, Agustin Portillo, and Deborah Remington, as well as recently acquired contemporary paintings by artists such as Margaret Evangeline, Callum Innes, Barbara Takenaga, and Peter Wegner. The exhibition will also feature a selection of watercolors and paintings on paper by artists such as Bill Haveron, Frank G. Applegate, and Peter Plagens and selections from the CU Art Museum’s collection of European Renaissance and Baroque paintings. 

The exhibition explores the enduring relationship of painting to luminous and liminal space and the ability of painting to create awareness of these qualities in our experiences of the everyday. Ranging from landscapes to minimalist fields to depictions of social space, the exhibition explores liminality and luminosity through multiple lenses.  

This exhibition is generously supported in part by the HBB Foundation and the CU Art Museum Benefactors and Members as well as the Arts and Culture Enrichment (ACE) student fees.
