Fall into Greatness: Contemporary Prints from the Jim and Martha Sweeny Collection

October 8 – December 30, 2017   Works on Paper Gallery

Contemporary Prints from the Jim and Martha Sweeny Collection

Since establishing the Lothar and Mildred Uhl Works on Paper Gallery, LRMA’s collection of contemporary prints has grown exponentially. Marking LRMA’s fifteen-year anniversary, we unveil a recent acquisition of fourteen fine art prints from Jim and Martha Sweeny, who were long-time friends of Lothar Uhl and fellow print collectors. This donation includes a cross-section of major contemporary printmakers including Louisa Chase, Donald Sultan, Brad Davis, Terry Winters, Hung Liu, Howardena Pindell and Thornton Dial. The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art is honored to receive such a significant collection of prints and mixed media works by notable contemporary artists, including well-known African-American artists. Four mixed media works by Mary Proctor, Clint Griffin, and Lonnie Holly will also be included in the exhibition.
