On loan from the Maier Museum of Art, this exhibition features rarely exhibited works on paper and oil paintings, including Arthur B. Davies Figurative Works on Paper from the Randolph College and Mac Cosgrove-Davies Collections and Arthur B. Davies Paintings from the Randolph College Collection.
“Brilliant” celebrates acquisitions made by the Art Museum of WVU over the past several
years and includes a number of rarely seen treasures from its permanent collection—many
exhibited for the first time. Together, the works in this exhibition exemplify
art of the present and recent past, as expressed by artists that seek intelligence
and intensity in the objects they create.
