A university is in a constant state of change. Students, professors, and visitors constantly cycle through the campus. Mirroring this rotation are the works of art around campus that are placed on view, taken down, and catalogued by the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery. The first step in this cycle is acquisition, when the University accepts or purchases a new work of art. Building on its growing collection of prints, photographs, and drawings, the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery exhibits some of their recent acquisitions to the GW Permanent Collection of more than 3,600 objects, including screenprints by Jules Olitski, two monoprints by Hannelore Baron, and photographs by Carl Chiarenza. Also, experimental new works based on her impressions of the Japanese painter, Sesshu (1420-1506) will be exhibited by artist, Keiko Hara. Hara currently is exhibiting other new works at the Katzen Art Center at American University.
In addition to the exhibition, the gallery will be exhibiting the Monro-Lenox Portrait of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart and two pages from the will of George Washington on loan from Fairfax County Circuit Court in anticipation of the inauguration of GW's 16th president, Steven Knapp.
The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from GW in May 2004 and has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees.
