Luther W. Brady Art Galleries
Flagg Building
500 17th Street NW
Corcoran School of the Arts & Design
Washington, DC 20006

Washington Color School artists such as Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, Kenneth Noland, Alma Thomas, Paul Reed, Howard Mehring, Jacob Kainen, Leon Berkowitz and others are Washington’s legacy and continually grow in stature in international arenas. What is particular about Washington, D.C. that may have shaped Color Field painting? The geometry, the atmosphere, or was it the presence of such collections as that of the Corcoran or the Phillips that combined to incubate the Washington Color School artists? Drawing from the GW Collection along with critical loans, paintings and mixed media will provide examples of the Washington Color School and its legacy. This exhibition marks the first for the Luther W. Brady Art Galleries in their new space in the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design, a fitting venue for many of the artists represented were alumni of the Corcoran or have showed there before. Works by Davis, Tom Downing, James Hilleary, Sheila Isham, Mokha Laget, Morris Louis, Larry Poons, Ann Purcell, Reed, Anne Truitt, and Ken Young, among others, will be included.
