David Bates: The Katrina Paintings $18.00

A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, David Bates: The Katrina Paintings. The catalogue includes essays by gallerist Arthur Roger, arts writer Carl Little, and Kemper Museum Curator Barbara O'Brien, as well as a foreword by Rachael Blackburn Cozad, director and CEO of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Published by the Kemper Museum, the catalogue is distributed by D.A.P.

For decades, Texas-based artist David Bates has chronicled the people and places along America’s bucolic Gulf Coast. Bates, like many Americans, was overwhelmed by 2005’s Hurricane Katrina and its destruction. In David Bates: The Katrina Paintings, the artist boldly addresses Katrina, one of the most severe and inexplicable tragedies of our time and its devastating aftermath. In this series, Bates’ paintings remind us again why art defines our civilizations.

After the exhibition is on view at the Kemper Museum, it travels to the Knoxville Museum of Art in Tennessee, where it will be on view October 29, 2010–February 13, 2011.
