I thought I would repost this little feature, “Gallery: Selections from the Nasher Museum of Art,” which appears in each issue of Duke Magazine. The work is “Kellylike,” an oil painting by Felrath Hines that was recently acquired by the Nasher Museum.

The upcoming exhibition “Color Balance: Paintings by Felrath Hines and Alma Thomas”  will give an artistic and historical context for abstract paintings by Hines by juxtaposing them with woks by the contemporary abstractionist, Alma Woodsey Thomas.  Thomas’s quiet oils with subtle color shifts, smooth surfaces and precise edges that embody a purist approach, will make a perfect contrast to Hines’s large, exuberant acrylics, which are based in nature.

Paintings by Hines are on view now at the Ackland Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
