James Volkert. Re: Imagining American Art is a 2017 exhibit at the South Bend Museum of Art which says: "Drawing upon his extensive knowledge of American Art History, as well as his long tenure as a museum professional (19 years at the Smithsonian), Volkert disassembles the history of American Painting and lays the parts out for us, activating them with machines and showing us details we may otherwise have missed." Also see artist's website Accessed 9/17

Michael Williams is a 2017 exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Art which says: "Over the last 10 years, Michael Williams has created paintings known for their layered imagery, eye-popping color, and use of techniques such as airbrushing and inkjet printing. His large-scale works often begin as drawings either on paper or on the computer screen before they are printed or transferred to canvas and then embellished with oil paint."  Also see 5/9/17 Artnet News interview.

Small Scales: Lands of Enchantment is a 2016-17 exhibit at the Bruce Museum which says: "While the creation of miniature scenes itself is not a new concept, contemporary artists use small works to encourage closer looking, drawing the viewer in so s/he becomes aware of a deeper message only after first being lured by the finesse and beauty of the piece. In this exhibition works are made from old books and repurposed suitcases, found objects and handcrafted items, glass and a living tree. The subject matter ranges just as widely from highly researched environmental and political issues to fanciful imaginary worlds and nostalgic memories of the family homestead." See image sheet.

State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now is a 2016 exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art which says: " Showcasing 134 works -- including paintings, photographs, videos, sculptures, works on paper, installations and performances -- by 52 under-recognized artists from nearly every U.S. region, the exhibition examines how today's artists are informed by the past, innovate with materials old and new, and engage deeply with issues relevant to their communities."  Also see Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art exhibit microsite.
