May 18–August 26, 2012

Kemper Museum

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions    

This was the first museum retrospective for the New York- and Maine-based painter, now in her 80s. It featured more than fifty paintings from six decades. A key member of New York's postwar art scene, Lois Dodd is best known for her works in which she paints the world around her—the cityscapes of New York and the woods and gardens of Maine. The exhibition was organized by the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

The exhibition travels to the Portland Museum of Art in Maine in early 2013.
