Oscar  Bluemner : The language of Trees

January 24th- May 5th, 2014
 Opening reception on Friday, Jan. 24, from 6-8 p.m.

 Oscar Bluemner: The Language of Trees is a reflection of the artist’s intense identification with nature that assumes a markedly human character. Curator Robert Favis was inspired by recent news in the spring that Stetson was officially named (for the second year in a row) a Tree Campus USA. “Since trees are such an important expressive subject for Bluemner, it seemed appropriate to celebrate his trees in an exhibition on our “Tree Campus.”

A “Curator’s Talk” with Roberta Favis will be on Wednesday, Feb. 19, in Room 25 in the Instructional Media Center, in the duPont-Ball Library, 134 E. Minnesota Ave.  (Pictured above:Winter Night, New Jersey, 1930, watercolor and tempera mounted on board, 10 x 13 ½ in., Vera Bluemner Kouba Collection, Stetson University.)
