Final Call: Milward Installation

There's plenty more to do in finalizing the installation of "A Passionate Pursuit: The Milward Collection"; however, the final painting was hung on Wednesday evening. Many thanks to Portia, Terrell, and Devon for assisting Laura, Bill, and me with the installation this evening.

The exhibition is the second installment in our "Year of the Collector" exhibition and event series. The first was the installation of works from the estate of June Daves McCandless, class of 1937, curated by Hannah Snider (class of 2011). The next event will be the exhibition celebrating the life and art of Irene Corey. Area collectors will gather to share their stories of this artist and former GC faculty member next Thursday, March 8. That event is part of the Women's History Month celebration as well. Following this, further events are planned.

Join us on Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. as we welcome John and Luanne Milward and their family to the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery. Stop by the gallery this Friday to meet Mr. Milward and to share his passion for collecting! If you need more information, read Caitlin's article in the Georgetonian here.
