The Herter Art Gallery celebrates its 50th year with Disruptions & Continuities: Recent Work by George Wardlaw. While also tracing back to work made in the last six years, it presents Wardlaw's final series, Disruptions. Made primarily on an iPad due to his increasingly failing health, this body of work was painted on canvas by his studio assistant, Kelsi Giguere. A practicing artist and a recent graduate from
the Department of Art at the University, Giguere quickly assumed the role of a collaborator.
Wardlaw, who passed away on July 26th while preparing for this exhibition, was a distinguished member of the avant-garde art scene in New York City during the 1950’s and ‘60’s. From 1968 until 1990, Wardlaw served in various capacities in the art department at UMass Amherst, including seventeen
years as department chair.
