A comprehensive exhibition showcasing more than 30 years of work by artist William Wegman will be on view at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art from July 13 through October 21, 2012. William Wegman: Hello Nature will feature more than 100 works including photographs, videos, paintings and drawings — all of which were produced in or inspired by the state of Maine.
In April, President Barry Mills, Museum of Art Director Kevin Salatino, and Dean for Academic Affairs Cristle Collins Judd, joined Wegman — and Weimaraners Bobbin, Candy, and Flo — for a press preview of the exhibition held at the artist’s studio in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. A new post at ArtInfo.com features a slideshow tour of Wegman’s studio, and the accompanying text anticipates his upcoming Bowdoin exhibition.
‘Hello Nature,’ a retrospective exhibition opening July 13 at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, in Maine — where Wegman and his family spend time each year — makes it clear that the artist’s legacy will involve more than his celebrated canine dress-up games.
