Well known as one of the most gifted and prolific poets of the modern era, A.R. (Archie Randolph) Ammons was also an abundant painter. A.R. Ammons: Watercolors focuses on Ammons’s abstract watercolors painted during 1977–1979, a time of intense productivity. The abstraction of these watercolors echo those found in Ammons’s poems and offer an expanded understanding of his art.

Celebrate the opening of A.R. Ammons: Watercolors with a presentation by Ammons scholar Elizabeth Mills who will discuss the works in the exhibition, relating them to Ammons’s poetic strategies: Thursday, January 9, 2020, 7:00 PM
