"Quiet Places, Reflective Moments: The Art of Del Gish"
2003-08-08 until 2003-11-23
Frye Art Museum
A collection of remarkable portraits, still lifes and landscapes by Pacific Northwest artist Del Gish, a student of the acclaimed Russian American realist painter Sergei Bongart, will be on display at the Frye Art Museum Aug. 8 through Nov. 23 in Quiet Places, Reflective Moments: The Art of Del Gish.Gish’s work provides another link in the Russian/American theme at the Frye Museum, the Jewel on the Hill, during the last half of 2003. Bringing together elements of East and West, Gish demonstrates a profound respect for a tradition that prescribes painting as a vehicle for self-knowledge, a tool for probing the nature of visual truths.
Born in rural Oklahoma, Del Gish received his master of fine arts degree from the University of Idaho. Gish studied with Russian American master Sergei Bongart and helped organize the well-received Bongart workshops. Gish’s work is in public and private collections, including the Art Students League in New York City, the Seattle Art Museum, the Frye Art Museum, and the SAFECO collection.
Related Russian exhibitions include An Imperial collection: Women Artists from the State Hermitage Museum, on view July 26 – Nov. 30, and Legacies of Russia at the Frye: Drawings and Paintings from the Permanent Collection on view Sept. 12 – Oct. 26.
Specializing in representation art, the Frye Art Museum offers free admission and free parking. For more information, please visit www.fryeart.org.
