Joseph Nicoletti: A Retrospective

June 12 – September 25, 2010

Joseph Nicoletti, an important realist painter, is a senior-ranking faculty member of the Department of Art and Visual Culture at Bates College, and has served as Director of summer sessions at the International School for Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy. Although he has taught at Bates since 1981 and his works have been featured in our exhibitions numerous times over the years, this will be the first exhibition at our museum to show a broad range of Nicoletti’s work. The exhibition will feature paintings and drawings from the museum’s collection, from other museums and private collections, and from the artist himself.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by art historian Jeffrey Muller. Joseph Nicoletti: A Retrospective is available at the Museum of Art or on-line at the Bates College Store.
