Lloyd Ney: Local Color

Episode 45:  The art of Lloyd Raymond “Bill” Ney (1893-1965) is far-ranging in terms of style, era, geography, subject and medium.  The Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, is presenting Lloyd Ney: Local Color, a showcase of Ney’s works, through September 11, 2016.  Ney, a native of nearby New Hope, Pennsylvania, travelled throughout the United States and the world, and participated in a variety of artistic scenes.  He was an outspoken Modernist, notable for his ambition and the controversies which marked his career.

Brooke talked to Louise Feder, assistant curator of the Michener Art Museum, about the exhibition.  Feder wrote her master’s thesis on Ney and in this interview she provides context for the artist and his art.  She also credits Ney’s family for preserving many of his works and for helping to maintain his legacy.

Programming at the Michener Art Museum includes a Curator’s Conversation and Gallery Talk on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, at 1 pm, and a Curator’s Lecture, on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, also at 1 pm.

This exhibit is basically his brainchild. He & Ai Wei Wei both collaborated on it. This is a pair that I wouldn’t have thought to put together, but the exhibit is a meeting of two artists that have more similarities and connections than meets the eye.
