At 7pm we will have a gallery talk about William Hawkins with
Nannette Maciejeunes, director of the Columbus Museum of Art.
William Hawkins was raised on a farm in Kentucky and learned to draw by copying illustrations from horse-auction announcements and calendars. In 1916 he moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he painted the cityscapes and fantastic animals for which he is best known. Hawkins’ work is in museums and major collections all over the world.
Be sure to see the first major retrospective of William Hawkins work at the Columbus Museum of Art that runs through May 20, 2018.
