Bo Bartlett: Earthly Matters at the Gibbes Museum of Art
The Gibbes Museum of Art has curated an exhibition of recent works by contemporary southern artist Bo Bartlett that will debut at the museum on Sept. 9. The 2017 winner of the Gibbes’ 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art, Bartlett is acclaimed for his large-scale paintings that explore modern American life and cultural heritage. Bo Bartlett: Earthly Matters will be on display in the museum’s third floor galleries from Sept. 9, 2022 – Jan. 15, 2023.
Earthly Matters includes a selection of Bartlett’s work that examines humankind’s impact on and interaction with nature’s elements. Bartlett’s subjects, both human and animal, often find themselves in precarious environmental situations, either from their own doing or by forces beyond their control.
