Mickalene Thomas at Giverny opens

September 11
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

The dazzling mixed-media works of Mickalene Thomas (b. 1971) combine rhinestones with acrylic and oil paints to create compositions that often reference iconic works of art from nineteenth-century Europe. In her reimagined renderings, the artist replaces the European subjects of these images with powerful and glamorous African American women, inviting questions about conventional beauty, racial identity, and the traditional art historical narrative.

Monet and American Impressionism opens

October 16
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

Monet and American Impressionism highlights the work of more than twenty American artists who launched a new way of painting in response to the influence of French impressionism. The exhibition presents four paintings by Claude Monet alongside roughly fifty paintings and twenty prints by many of the leading figures of American impressionism, such as Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, Theodore Robinson, John Henry Twachtman, and J. Alden Weir. These artists adopted the innovations of French impressionism and ultimately paved the way to a uniquely American style of painting in the late nineteenth century. The exhibition includes landscapes, portraits, intimate depictions of women and children, and images of modern life in American cities, which together generate dialogues about techniques, composition, and subject matter.
