“Once you put your hand in the paint you must do something, create something” - Jules Olitski



 It has been quite a while since our last post here at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, but we are excited to say that we have almost finished our installation for Jules Olitski On An Intimate Scale. Jules Olitski, an American painter known mostly for his abstract works was born in the 1920’s and died just a short time ago in 2007.  We are thrilled to display pieces from the Olitski collection yet again, as this will be the Gallery’s third exhibition featuring the artist.
The exhibition will open Friday, September 21st with a reception with the artist’s family, and will run through December 14th. Along the same time span, the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center will be hosting their show Revelation: Major Paintings by Jules Olitski.  The Brady Art Gallery’s exhibition of smaller scale works is a fitting comparison to the monumental works that will be on view at American University.  Come get to know Olitski’s style with a close view to his admired paintings. 
Along with the show, there will be a panel discussion at the Phillips Collection on Jules Olitski’s work as a segment of the Creative Voices DC series.  Do not hesitate to come by The Phillips Collection on September 20th at 6:00 PM for more information on Olitski’s collected works.

About

Washington, District of Columbia, United States
"Found In Collection" or simply "FIC" is the way many museums classify the more mysterious items in their possession that have little or no documentation. Here at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery of the George Washington University, we do keep extensive records of our collection, but some of the items we come across in academic buildings or our own storage can leave us wondering. This blog is an effort to showcase some of the more curious examples and their stories, and to provide a glimpse of the great variety of art pieces within the collection. To learn more about the Brady Gallery's history, recent exhibitions, or the George Washington University, take a look at the links below.
