A Light of His Own: Clyfford Still at Yaddo <p>During the summers of 1934 and 1935, Clyfford Still was a guest at Yaddo, the artists’ retreat in Saratoga Springs, New York. Still was a twenty-eight-year-old graduate student and teaching fellow at Washington State College in Pullman when first invited to Yaddo, and at the time, his resumé was minimal compared to other guests. Still remembered his time at Yaddo as “the first absolute free time in [my] life…to think, dream and paint.” Here, Still wrote that he began to “move away from painting as reacting to that which one sees from outside,” towards a “concept of painting as inner comprehension.”</p> <p>At the center of this exhibition and its accompanying catalogue are the 19 small paintings Still created at Yaddo. These renderings of regional farming scenes and rural landscapes represent newly introspective figurative work that Still understood as “bordering on the tragic” and “forcefully moving.” Installed in two of the Museum’s intimate, low-ceiling galleries, A Light of His Own also includes Still’s significant hand/head study on loan from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, New York.</p> 1250 Bannock St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Highlights from the Collection <p><em>Spotlight 02</em> is surrounded by a new display of the permanent collection installed throughout all of the Lanny and Sharon Martin Galleries. This presentation features approximately 50 paintings and 30 works on paper by Still spanning the artist’s 60-year career.</p> <p>The mostly chronological narrative begins in the 1920s with traditional landscape subjects and Depression-era figure studies that transform into quasi-abstractions. These culminate with Still’s groundbreaking wartime abstractions and monumental late paintings that show the artist at the height of his powers. There are more than 25 works in the installation that have never been exhibited previously, including a number of early anatomical sketches discovered in the Clyfford Still Archives.</p> 1250 Bannock St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Its songwriting has roots in Americana and pop, but it’s informed by an avant-garde sensibility.”</p> <p>Clyfford Still Museum forecourt<br />Free | No registration required<br />Free Museum admission 5&#8211;8 p.m.</p> 1250 Bannock St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
