William and Marguerite Zorach invigorated American modernism with their deep commitment to the transformative power of art.
“Paint and Spirit” explores dimensions of the Zorachs’ many worlds, as refigured through their art: the avant-garde, which carried them from Europe to America at the turn of the 20th century, home and family life, and the natural world. It highlights the diverse media in which they worked and includes paintings, drawings and linocuts by both artists, jewelry and sculpture by William and two important textile pieces by Marguerite.
This special exhibition was curated and designed by students of Professor Linda Aleci’s 2011 Curatorial Seminar and is the culmination of two semesters of research, planning, curation and design.
➢ Reception and gallery talk with the curators: Oct. 27 at 4:45 p.m.
