Celestial Centennial: The Art and Legacy of Dorothy Gillespie

Saturday, April 04, 2020 - Sunday, July 26, 2020

Organized in honor of the 100th anniversary of the artist’s birth, Celestial Centennial: The Art and Legacy of Dorothy Gillespie provides a retrospective look through Gillespie’s career, beginning with her early Abstract Expressionist paintings and culminating in her colorful large-scale relief abstractions in metal, which became Gillespie’s hallmark.

Responding to the celebratory theme, the Museum will activate several of its spaces with Gillespie’s art, and will include pieces from its own collection along with many loans from Radford University and other regional collections.

The exhibition will be on view in the Bank of America/Dominion Resources Gallery and the David R. and Susan S. Goode Gallery April 4-July 26, 2020.
