Gallery Talk – “Charles Thwaites: An American Journey” with Graeme Reid

Join Graeme Reid, Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Museum of Wisconsin Art, for a gallery talk in conjunction with DuMA’s new exhibit: Charles Thwaites: An American Journey.

From Milwaukee’s burlesque houses to Mabel Dodge Luhan’s Pink House in Taos, Charles Thwaites quietly went about recording his surrounds with a keen eye and a rare talent. This talk will trace Thwaites’ artistic journey from a chance encounter with an artist at UW Madison in the 1920s, to being at the epicenter of New Mexico’s cultural life in the 1950s, revealing an artist completely in tune with the shifting artistic landscape in America in the middle decades of the 20th century.

Charles Thwaites: An American Journey is supported in part by Mosaic Lodge No. 125 and American Trust & Savings Bank.
