Warren Rohrer: Painter of the Fields
October 7 - November 12, 2017
Lancaster Museum of Art
This exhibit, the first major overview of Warren Rohrer's work held in Lancaster County will examine the various stages of his career; including works from his early days of drawing to his fully realized abstract artistic language based on the fields of Lancaster County where he lived. Rohrer, who was one of the premier twentieth century abstract painters working in Philadelphia, went on to teach painting at the University of the Arts, and had his first major museum exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This overview of his life and work will be from a uniquely Lancaster perspective and explore the deeply inherent connection of his love of the land in the county and how he developed that into his own abstract language that he used for the balance of his career.
This exhibit is accompanied by a catalog, Warren Rohrer: Painter of the Fields by Anne M. Lampe.
Coinciding with the 2017 Governor's Awards for the Arts on October 26, At 11:00 am please join Anne M. Lampe, Executive Director and Chief Curator for a guided tour of the Rohrer exhibit.
