"First Snow of Winter" by C.Curry Bohm, 1934
Collection of Douglas and Laura Runyan
WE HAVE CANCELLED THE LECTURE AND TOUR PLANNED FOR NOVEMBER 18 DUE TO COVID 19 CONCERNS.
We had planned to substitute the traditional monthly meeting with a lecture and visit to an exhibition of a collection of works by C.Curry Bohm, an early Brown County artist, at the University of St.Francis in the Mimi and Ian Rolland Art Center. Luckily, FWAG officers pre-recorded the presentation by Douglas Runyan which includes a brief overview of C.Curry Bohm along with projected images of a selection of Bohm's works. Please plan to listen to his talk by going to our education page and then make plans to see this exhibition on your own time.
As described in the announcement sent out by USF, "This exhibition explores the art of C.Curry Bohm (1894-1971), one of the most successful and awarded of the early Brown County artists. More than 50 works spanning almost 50 years create the most comprehensive group of Bohm's work ever assembled. Twenty-six Hoosier Salon paintings and 20 prize-winning paintings from juried exhibitions present the breadth of the artist's subject matter, including classic Brown County and Smoky Mountain scenes, East Coast harbor scenes and seascapes, and rare still lifes. Paintings from all seasons are represented, including many of the artist's iconic winter landscapes."
We extend our deep gratitude to Douglas Runyan, artist, collector, and FWAG member, for generously sharing his time and knowledge and to Justin Johnson, Gallery Director of UFS for having reserved the evening to accommodate the Guild.
