In the Studio with Wilbur Niewald

In the Studio with Wilbur Niewald

From early abstractions, to his later dedication to painting only from direct observation, In the Studio surveys Wilbur Niewald’s nearly 70-year painting career.

The exhibition encompasses paintings from the 1950s to the present, with works from the museum’s collection, as well as private and the artist’s personal collections.

A native Kansas Citian and professor emeritus at the Kansas City Art Institute, the Nelson-Atkins is honored to present canonical works of this beloved artist.

In the Studio will be installed within the Bloch Galleries, adjacent to works by artists who heavily influenced Niewald’s subjects and styles.

The artist will lead two tours of the exhibition:
Thursday, September 27, 6-7 pm
Sunday, October 21, 2-3 pm.

In November, The Nerman Museum will present Wilbur Niewald In the Landscape, an exhibition of recent watercolors.
