Sewell Sillman Exhibit at Asheville Art Museum

January 7

The Asheville Art Museum presents lunchtime art breaks, a series of gallery talks and presentation designed to inform and engage you in dialogue with members of our curatorial and education departments, docents and special guests. Join us for a guided tour of the Museum exhibition Sewell Sillman: Pushing Limits led by our Museum docents. Sewell Sillman: Pushing Limits celebrates the life and work of groundbreaking artist Sewell Sillman (1924 - 1992). In the late 1940s, Sillman studied with Josef Albers at Black Mountain College and continued to work with Albers until the 1970s. Sillman absorbed Albers’s approach to color, design, drawing and education over the decades of their work together, bringing Albers’s lessons to bear on his own art and teaching. This exhibition features many of Sillman’s graceful abstract drawings and watercolors alongside powerful color studies printed in collaboration with Albers.
