This year the Friends of the Museum are excited to have three artworks up for auction during the Harvest Supper.
Jason Bouldin, William Dunlap, and Robert Malone are our featured artists this year.
Jason Bouldin has been described by American Artist magazine as “a gifted artist who has already established himself as a portrait and landscape painter.” He was featured by The Artist’s Magazine in their 20th anniversary issue as one of 20 contemporary artists “on the rise” in America.
Nationally regarded for his portrait work, Jason Bouldin received the Portrait Society of America’s top prize for one of his portraits in 2002 and has shown nine times at the prestigious Royal Society of Portrait Artists, London, England.
Although primarily a portraitist, he seeks subjects for landscape and still life studies, and has garnered attention for works in these genres as well.
William Dunlap has distinguished himself as an artist, arts commentator and educator, during a career that has spanned more than three decades.
His paintings, sculpture and constructions are included in prestigious collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Lauren Rogers Museum, Mobil Corporation, Riggs Bank, IBM Corporation, Federal Express, The Equitable Collection, Rogers Ogden Collection, Arkansas Art Center, the United States State Department, and United States Embassies throughout the world.
He has had solo exhibitions at the Corocoran Gallery of Art, National Academy of Science, Aspen Museum of Art, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Museum of Western Virginia, Albany Museum of Art, Cheekwood Fine Arts Center, Mint Museum of Art, Mississippi Museum of Art, Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans, to name but a few. Panorama of the American Landscape, his fourteen panel, 112 feet long cyclorama painting depicting a contemporary view of the Shenandoah Valley in summer and the Antietam battlefield in winter, was commissioned for the Rotunda Gallery at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 1985, but since its debut has been shown in nearly a dozen American museums and art centers, its most recent venue being the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA. In addition, Reconstructed Recollections and In the Spirit of the Land are also exhibitions of Mr. Dunlap’s work that continue major tours.
Robert Malone’s landscape paintings in oil capture the sublimity of nature; each canvas reveals the inherent spiritual reality of the beautiful world in which we exist. He has exhibited at the Nicole-Perry Gallery, Memphis,TN.; Carol Robinson Gallery, New Orleans LA; Yeiser Museum, Paducah, KY; Meridian Museum of Art, Meridian, MS; Brooks Museum, Memphis, TN; Allen Price Gallery, University of Wisconsin; University of Melbourne, Australia. His work is in the corporate collections of AT&T, Ochsner Clinic, and the National Bank of Commerce. He has work in many private collections throughout the United States including New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Washington, DC; Memphis, TN; Nashville, TN; Atlanta, GA; New Orleans, LA; Winter Park, FL; and Jackson, MS.
“I view my position as a teacher in the role of a guide that knows the journey of the creative process, and who helps each student find his or her path in that journey. Civilization is based on the culture of art in one form or another, and each human being has a contribution to make to that culture.”
