September 13, 2008–January 4, 2009
This exhibition of more than seventy paintings, drawings, and prints by Ben Frank Moss honors the artist’s twenty years at Dartmouth College, where he has served as chairman of the Studio Art Department and, since 1993, as the George Frederick Jewett Professor of Studio Art. Ranging from expansive, luminous landscapes inspired by Northwest summers to intimate, nearly abstract still lifes, these works reveal the artist’s fascination with lush color, essential forms, and an ineffable, enveloping presence beyond the subject at hand. The accompanying catalogue, which is the most comprehensive examination of Moss’s career to date, includes an extensive interview with the artist and an overview of his career written by former Moss student Joshua Chuang, Class of 1998, now an assistant curator at the Yale University Art Gallery.
This exhibition and its related publication were generously supported by a gift from Katherine D. and John H. Krehbiel III, Class of 1991, Thayer 1992; a grant from the George Frederick Jewett Foundation; a contribution from the Dean of the Faculty Office; and the museum's Ray Winfield Smith 1918 Fund and Eleanor Smith Fund.
