Reece Museum (ETSU) / 363 Stout Dr., Johnson City, TN July 22 - September 20th

Paul Lancaster

The Reece Museum, in cooperation with Grey Carter – Objects of Art, will present Tennessee Visionary: The Art of Paul Lancaster on display from July 22 to September 20, 2024. Carter, along with Reece staff, will curate this exhibition to include works from both Grey Carter – Objects of Art and the Reece Museum’s collection, which includes seven works by the artist.

Tennessee Visionary features paintings and etchings that explore the artistic journey of Paul Lancaster (1930 – 2019), a self-taught artist and Tennessee native. Without any formal art education, Lancaster began to paint in the late 1950s and has gained increasing recognition for his creations. One could easily see his works as "visions" of a beautiful life rich in the wonders of nature. His works are held in private collections as well as the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, American Visionary Art Museum, Hickory Art Museum, University of Virginia, the Parthenon Museum, the Reece Museum, and others.
