Manning Williams: Reinventing Narrative Painting | Exhibit at The Morris

Exhibit Dates: June 19 – September 12, 2021 | Location: The Morris Museum | Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 10am-5pm/Sun 12-5pm/CLOSED Mon & Major Holidays

Reinventing Narrative Painting, the first major exhibition devoted to revered South Carolina artist Manning Williams since his death in 2012, was organized by the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina, an institution with which he enjoyed a close relationship from 1967 until the end of his life. The exhibition and the publication that accompanies it represent virtually every aspect of his long, remarkably prolific career.

The exhibition is accompanied by a lavishly illustrated book that documents his entire career. Published by Evening Post Books, it includes a foreword by Gibbes Museum executive director and chief curator Angela D. Mack; acknowledgments by the artist’s wife of many years, Barbara Williams; an insightful essay by art historian David Houston; and a richly informative biographical essay by Williams’s longtime friend, retired newspaperman Charles R. Rowe. It’s available for purchase in the Morris Museum Store. Manning Williams: Reinventing Narrative Painting was organized by the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, South Carolina.
