UMUC Art Exhibition Showcases Work of James Hilleary

November 26, 2012

Visit our newest exhibition Modernism: James Hilleary and Color on view beginning Monday, December 3, 2012, through Sunday, February 3, 2013, in the Arts Program Gallery. Hours are 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

James Hilleary is a Maryland-based abstract colorist whose geographical proximity to Washington, D.C., and artistic style propelled him into a larger group of Washington Color School painters during the late 1950s and the 1960s. A Renaissance man with deep knowledge of architecture and music, Hilleary is best known for his commitment to creating harmonious, expertly executed canvases in variations of a signature style.

This exhibition features approximately 30 works in various sizes from the past 50 years and includes paintings from each of Hilleary’s signature series: Variations, Reflections, Petals, and Striae. It also includes a selection of his more private drawings and experimental sculpture.
