Miles C. Horton Jr. Gallery and Sherwood Payne Quillen '71 Reception Gallery
A prominent Virginia artist with a long record of national and international exhibitions, Ray Kass is well known not only for the quality and breadth of his art but as a pivotal, even catalytic figure who over the years brought luminaries of the art world, including John Cage, to our region and influenced generations of artists. This exhibition highlights exemplary work from Kass’ prolific career, ranging from his large-scale, multi-panel Polyptch (1961-2003) paintings to his most recent Still Lifes (2015-2018), created with stencils in an inventive layering of water media, oil emulsion, and dry pigment on rag paper.
