As I sit here writing to you all, the works featured in the upcoming John Edward Thompson exhibition are being photographed by Bill O’Connor. The photographs will be published in the accompanying catalog for the exhibition opening on November 12th in our South Gallery. Thompson (b. 1882) was a pioneering artist who served on the DU faculty from 1929 to his death in 1945. The exhibition will include paintings, sketches, and drawings from DU’s permanent collection and other regional sources. What’s nifty about this show, is it’s curated by current DU Art History undergrad and grads! Keep checking back for more information about the show.
