DESCRIPTION

This very first museum retrospective for the Atlanta’s beloved, Ruth Laxson, Hip Young Owl will feature more than 125 works including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and original artist books, mail art and more – including works from several public and private collections and early works that have never before best shown. Curated by Marcia Wood, a prominent Atlanta gallery owner and Jo Anne Paschall, co-founder of the former Nexus Press, this exhibition will survey the breadth and depth of this 88 year old artist’s work and celebrate the legacy of a true master throughout a long career. MOCA GA has raised special funding to produce a full color catalogue to document the exhibition, which will include essays by Laurie Whitehall Chong, Special Collections Librarian and Curator of Artists' Books at the Fleet Library at Rhode Island School of Design, and Margaret Shufeldt, retired Curator of Works on Paper at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University.
