“‘Painting’ is an exhibition meant to show all the possibilities through this most traditional medium,” said Young. “In this show, there are artists who work purely abstract and those who work realistically with the figure. By selecting a range of painters, students will understand the breadth of contemporary painting. Our audience will see irony, experiences and contemporary issues through the lenses of abstraction, portraits, landscapes and works in between.”

Young said the Baum is grateful to the artists and private lenders including Ada Gallery, Richmond, VA; Hearne Fine Art, Little Rock; Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore, Maryland; and Reuben Saunders Gallery, Wichita, Kansas.
