The vicissitudes of land and sea have provided rich subject matter for John Walker paintings over the past fifteen years. Sheldon Museum of Art’s latest exhibition, John Walker: Moments of Observation, features both large- and small-scale works created by the artist in response to living much of this period on the coast of Maine. See it for yourself this Saturday beginning at 12:00 p.m.
Born in Birmingham, England, in 1939 and trained in the UK and France, Walker was selected to represent Great Britain in the 1972 Venice Biennale. Widely traveled, he currently resides in the United States. He has taught at the Royal College in London and at Yale University. In the 1980s he was Dean of Victoria College of Art in Melbourne, Australia. From 1993 to 2015, he taught at Boston University and is currently Professor Emeritus of Art and former head of the graduate program in Painting and Sculpture at Boston University School of Visual Arts.
He has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York; The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C.; The Tate Gallery in London; The Hayward Gallery in London; The Kunstverein in Hamburg; The Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia; and others.
John Walker: Moments of Observation will be on display at Sheldon Museum of Art through July 14th. Admission to view the exhibit is free.
