February 16, 2013- March 31, 2013
From February 16 – March 31, 2013, the Academy Art Museum will exhibit a selection of paintings and drawings of Greg Mort. In 2011, David H. Hickman, an Easton-born, Washington DC resident, generously donated over 30 paintings by Mort to the Museum to make it the largest public repository of the artist’s work.
This exhibition draws from the Hickman gift as well as some preliminary drawings that were donated by Greg Mort to enhance the collection.
Greg Mort an internationally acclaimed, self-taught artist hikes the rugged coast of Maine and travels the rural trails of Maryland with his brushes, paints and canvases. Drawing and painting since childhood, Mort’s professional art career star began to rise at an early age with his first museum show at 18. His watercolor, oil and pastel images are in notable collections around the world.
