Maynard Dixon: Portraits of the Southwest

January 22nd – May 10th, 2005

This exhibition features drawings by Maynard Dixon during his earliest sojourns in the American Southwest at the turn of the century. Dixon’s drawings provide an intimate glimpse into the life of an artist who was a keen observer of people and the landscape as well as a devoted draughtsman. These works were generously gifted to the UA Museum of Art by the artist’s widow, Edith Hamlin, in combination with purchases made possible through the Edward J. Gallagher, Jr. Memorial Bequest. This collection was exhibited in conjunction with “SPACE SILENCE SPIRIT: Maynard Dixon’s West.”
