64th Annual Morrill Hall Display
To Show Contemporary Paintings
By LUCIGRACE SWITZER
Three one-man shows will be
featured in the Nebraska Art As
sociation's 64th annual exhibi
tion to open in Gallery B, Mor
rill Hall, Sunday.
Irene Rice Pereira. Robert
Gwathmey, and Karl Knaths rep

to contemporary painting in one
MISS PEREIRA is considered
an outstanding exponent of purely
abstract art. Her paintings in this
exhibition are mainly studies in
texture transposed on pure line,
form and color. She favors the
geometric rectangle in achieving
unusual spatial dimensional ef
fect Knaths, on the other hand, uses
abstract with some attempt at
representation. Muted tones pre
dominate in his paintings instead
of the strong ones used by Miss
It is Gwathmey s subject matter
rather than style which is notable
in his paintings. He portrays with
startling realism studies of the
i outhern Negro.
ONE ROOM of the exhibition
will be devoted to international
paintings with selected works by
artists from France, England,
Italy, Norway, Spain and Canada.
A few American paintings will be j
This is the first time art by
most of the Europeans has been
shown in Lincoln. Many of the
artists had their initial showing
in the United States within the
past year or two.
Another group of paintings are
the work of American conserva
tives ; Alexander Brook, Eugene
Speicher, Henry Varnum Poor,
Raphael Soyer, Sidney Daufman
THE WORK of a young Ameri
can artist, Jimmy Ernst, involves
an almost mecnamcaily precise
abstraction. His "Skydrift" is
particularly representative of this
form. A series of etchings by
Ernst demonstrates the effect of
color on design. Titled "Listen
ing In," three etchings are ex
actly the same except for the
use of color to achieve complete
ly different impressions.
Realism will be evident in the
works of Paul Cadmus, Peter
Blume, Robert Bickery. Bernard
Perlin and Charles Rain. An ex
ample of this art form is Blume's
