Gibbes Museum of Art presents The Art of Alfred Hutty. Woodstock to Charleston

The Gibbes Museum of Art presents The Art of Alfred Hutty. Woodstock to Charleston in an exhibition on view through April 22, 2012.

Day’s End (also known as Close of Day), ca. 1940, by Alfred Hutty (American,1877 – 1954), watercolor on paper, 18 x 24 inches, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Brumley, Charleston, S.C.

This exhibition will revisit the life and work of 20th century American artist Alfred Hutty—one of the principal artists of the Charleston Renaissance. Among the first artists to settle in the flourishing art colony at Woodstock, New York in the early 1900s, Hutty established himself as one of the leading painters of the town’s natural environs. He later traveled to Charleston, South Carolina and was inspired to try his hand at etching for the first time. Though a prolific painter throughout his career, it was his gift for etching that earned Hutty a distinguished and enduring position in American art.

Featuring nearly sixty works by Hutty in oil, watercolor, pastel, and most importantly his etchings, drypoints, and lithographs this retrospective exhibition of Hutty’s career will be accompanied by a major full-color publication that includes a catalog raisonné of the artist’s prints.

The Gibbes Museum of Art exists to link the art of our past with the art of our future through innovative exhibitions, acquisitions, interpretation and educational programs that preserve and promote the art of Charleston and the American South.
