A Visionary in His Own Words: The Art and Letters of Morris Graves
With Vicki Halper
It is always enlightening to hear an articulate artist discuss their own work. Legendary Northwest painter Morris Graves
is no longer with us, but his words live on, thanks to a recent collection of Gravesís letters compiled and edited by independent curator Vicki Halper. Halper, who knew the artist personally, reads from the book, Morris Graves: Selected Letters
, while we look at and discuss the images being described. In the more literary days before email, Graves was particularly eloquent in his use of the written word, and they offer a brilliant window into his mystical works.
