This first career museum retrospective features paintings that define the places and subjects that have mattered most in the nearly sixty-year career of this American plein-air painter. The exhibition includes images of the places that have mattered most to Dodd: the cityscapes of New York City’s Lower East Side and the woods and gardens of mid-coastal Maine. The exhibition’s 51 works range in date from 1955’s Pasture to 2010’s self-portrait Shadow with Easel.

The exhibition is organized by the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Barbara O'Brien, the Museum’s chief curator. A full-color catalogue will accompany the exhibition with essays by O'Brien; John Yau, poet, curator and professor at Rutgers University; and Alison Ferris, curator at the John Michael Kohler Art Center, Sheboygan, Wisconsin. After showing at the Kemper Museum, the exhibition travels to the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, where it will be on view in early 2013.
