On Saturday, October 12, 2013 the Morrison Gallery opened a comprehensive exhibition of renowned New York sculptor Don Gummerʼs wall reliefs and monumental bronze and steel sculptures. The show, which marked Gummerʼs first with The Morrison Gallery, remained on view through December 15th.

Gummer, whose work has traditionally been associated with the modernist tradition of Constructivism, will show more than a dozen large-scale sculptures, including early painted wooden wall reliefs, and large columnar works in bronze, steel and painted aluminum. The exhibition has been featured in the September issue of Modern Painters magazine as one of the 100 Best Fall Shows.

William Morrison, owner and director of the eponymous Morrison Gallery, said “It is a privilege to introduce such a broad range of Mr. Gummerʼs most ambitious work as a whole, complete exhibition. In the same way that the artistʼs work is resolved, so is this show.”

Don Gummer was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1946. He attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, and received an MFA from Yale University. Don has shown extensively across the country since the 1970s. His work can be found in many public spaces, including the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH; Evansville Museum of Arts and Science, Evansville, IN; Kitakyushu International Center, Japan; Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA; and the Meridian Street Plaza, Indianapolis, IN.

The Morrison Gallery is located at 8 Old Barn Road near the intersection of Routes 7 and 341. Opened in 1999, the soaring, modern gallery offers on going exhibits of sculpture, painting and other media under the direction of owner William Morrison.
