Event Description

William Dickerson, Barn in Snow, 1940. Lithograph, 8 x 11 15/16 in. Gift of Ms. Marian Hayenga

First elected artist member of the Prairie Print Makers, William Dickerson (1904–1972) expressed a muted eloquence in unadorned scenes of both his native Kansas and New Mexico. Dickerson was born in El Dorado, Kansas, in 1904 and resided in the state for most of his life. In his art, Dickerson was committed to depicting Kansas and the surrounding region as he saw it, unfiltered by the European traditions. This exhibition, curated by Barbara Thompson, continues WAM’s series highlighting this important artistic group. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue written by Thompson.
