Exhibit Details

John Kingerlee is a 70-year-old British-born artist who currently resides in rural Ireland. Kingerlee’s expressive paintings are a combination of gestural brushstrokes and collage defining images that float between representational form and abstraction. This exhibition was originally curated by the late William Zimmer, former contributing art critic for the New York Times, and made available to us through Katharine T. Carter and Associates. This exhibition will be accompanied by The William Zimmer Prize in Art Criticism, a competition in critical writing focusing on the works of John Kingerlee and open to all students currently enrolled in a Fine Arts program in area colleges or universities.
