Nashville painter Dawn Whitelaw taught at her Alma Mater, Lipscomb University, as an adjunct instructor for over twenty-five years. The artist, who has garnered international acclaim for her art, won Best of Show at the Portrait Society of America in Washington, D.C., and the Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America exhibition in 2002. This summer Whitelaw curated a stunning collection of paintings at the Lipscomb campus from the holdings of Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Museum of Art. Selections from Cheekwood at the John C. Hutcheson Gallery includes sixteen works on loan from Cheekwood’s collection of over 8,000 works of art. Whitelaw selected the paintings based on her desire to exhibit a wide variety of artistic techniques. Fisherman’s Daughter by Robert Henri, Windy Day by the Sea by Martha Walter, and Durham, Connecticut by George Inness represent just a few of the historic canvases on display. Whitelaw says, “All the paintings in this exhibition were selected for their visual appeal. The artists have depicted ordinary life but from a very personal point of view.” The show will be on view through September 28.
