Loyola Collects: Selections from the Permanent Collection & Faculty Private Collections

Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola College presents: Loyola Collects: Selections from the Permanent Collection & Faculty Private Collections

Exhibition Dates: October 6 – October 26, 2008
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 9, 5 – 7 pm

Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola College in Maryland is pleased to present Loyola Collects: Selections from the Permanent Collection & Faculty Private Collections. This exciting exhibition will include works of nineteenth-century French artists such as Honoré Daumier, Alponse LeGros and Dominique Jouvet-Magron as well as drawings of Minimalist, Agnes Martin and Abstract Expressionist, Morris Louis. The exhibition will also feature lithograph prints by Irving Amen, Hollis Sigler and various other prints and photographs from contemporary artists such as Suzanne Marshall, Joy Laville, Ed Ruscha, Matthew Sugarman, Grace Hartigan, M. Jordan Tierney, Joseph Hyde and Sarah Hobbs.

We are also proud to include in the exhibition several items of rare furniture, including a collection of “Morris Chairs” (ca.1933) designed by Gilbert Rohde (1894-1944) for the Troy Sunshade Company, and an adjustable “flip top” floor lamp designed and manufactured by Kurt Versen (1901-1997) around 1935; Rohde, a noted American industrial designer, is widely known as an innovative furniture maker, and is perhaps best known for his design of the clock tower for the Herman Miller Company, Zeeland, Michigan in 1931. Both Rohde’s and Versen’s pieces should provide a fascinating glimpse at the work of some of America’s foremost designers of the early decades of the twentieth century.

Loyola Collects will remain on view through Sunday, October 26, 2008. Please join us on Thursday, October 9th at 5pm for an opening reception at the gallery.

Julio Fine Arts Gallery is located on the Loyola College campus at 4501 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 11am -5pm and Sunday 1-4pm.
