Walter Anderson Museum of Art presents One World, Two Artists. John Alexander & Walter Anderson

The Walter Anderson Museum of Art in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, presents One World, Two Artists. John Alexander & Walter Anderson, an exhibition on view now through April 30, 2012.

The exhibition is organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans in collaboration with WAMA and the family of Walter Anderson.

“The work of southern artists is often infused with a deep sense of place and time. Whether inspired by the small town of the artist’s birth; the land; the water – be it river, lake, or sea; the music, the people; or even the animals, that sense of place shows up in subtle, surprising, or literal ways, unique to each artist. One World, Two Artists explores how the Gulf Coast was a shared source of inspiration for two native artists: John Alexander and Walter Anderson,” wrote Bradley Sumrall, acting curator at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

The Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA) opened in 1991 in historic Ocean Springs, MS. WAMA is dedicated to the celebration of the works of Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), American master, whose depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him among the forefront of American painters of the Twentieth Century; and to his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramicist. The Museum celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2011.
