The Gibbes Museum of Art has organized two new exhibitions that will run through April 22. “The Art of Alfred Hutty: Woodstock to Charleston,” on view in the Main Gallery, offers a career retrospective of the Twentieth Century American artist Alfred Hutty (1877‱954), the master painter and printmaker who is considered one of the principal artists of the Charleston Renaissance.
“Jill Hooper: Contemporary Realist,” on view in the Rotunda Galleries, features recent work by Charleston artist Jill Hooper, a classically trained, realist painter whose portraits have earned international recognition.
The “The Art of Alfred Hutty” includes 60 works in oil, watercolor, pastel, etchings, drypoints and lithographs of evocative landscapes and realistic studies of the human condition by Hutty, who was from Woodstock, N.Y., and lived in Charleston. A full-color catalog offers the first comprehensive examination of his impact on American art in the South and beyond.
“Jill Hooper: Contemporary Realist” features recent work by the artist. The exhibition includes a number of Hooper’s acclaimed portraits, along with large-scale landscapes and still life paintings. Her training is grounded in the techniques of the Old Masters. This is her first solo exhibition at the Gibbes.
The Gibbes Museum of Art is at 135 Meeting Street. For information, 843-722-2706 or www.gibbesmuseum.org .
