GRACE HARTIGAN: (1922-2008) A Life in Painting
November 18, 2009 – January 9, 2010

The work in this exhibition include paintings and works on paper from the 1950’s up to the most recent works created in 2007. A catalog with an essay by Robert S. Mattison, author of the monograph “Grace Hartigan a painter’s world” will be available at the gallery.

Hartigan was New York’s gift to Baltimore. In the early 1960s, Hartigan moved to Baltimore and at the urging of Eugene Leake, then president of the Maryland Institute College of Art, became the director of the Hoffberger School of Painting Graduate Program at MICA where she continuously nurtured and mentored students up to her death in 2008. In 1979, Hartigan joined the C. Grimaldis Gallery where she has been exhibiting continuously ever since with 18 solo exhibitions and countless thematic and group shows.
