The Morrison Gallery is set to open a comprehensive exhibition of renowned New York sculptor Don Gummerʼs monumental sculptures on Saturday, October 12th from 5-7:00pm in the Main Gallery. The show, which marks Gummerʼs first with The Morrison Gallery, will be on view through November 17th.
Gummer, whose work has traditionally been associated with the modernist tradition of Constructivism, will show more than a dozen large-scale sculptures, including painted wooden wall reliefs, and large columnar works in bronze, steel and painted aluminum. The exhibition has been featured in the September issue of Modern Painters magazine as one of the 100 Best Fall Shows.
William Morrison, owner and director of the eponymous Morrison Gallery, said "It is a privilege to introduce such a broad range of Mr. Gummerʼs most ambitious work as a whole, complete exhibition. In the same way that the artistʼs work is resolved, so is this show."
Don Gummer was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1946. He attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, and received an MFA from Yale University. Don has shown extensively across the country since the 1970s. His work can be found in many public spaces, including the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH; Evansville Museum of Arts and Science, Evansville, IN; Kitakyushu International Center, Japan; Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA; and the Meridian Street Plaza, Indianapolis, IN.
