Lawton Gallery to present Warhol photographs
The Lawton Gallery at the UW-Green Bay will present “Andy Warhol Photographs,” Thursday, Oct. 10-Oct. 31 in 230 Theatre Hall. An opening reception will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 10, featuring an introductory talk by Lawton curator Stephen Perkins at 5 p.m. The Warhol exhibition features a selection of Polaroid and silver gelatin photographs that were part of a recent gift to UW-Green Bay from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. Many of the Polaroid photographs are preliminary studies for silkscreen portraits, and the black-and-white works include portraits and other miscellaneous subjects that caught Warhol’s attention. Both sets of works attest to Warhol’s busy social and professional life, as well as a curiosity about the world that he obsessively explored through the medium of photography.
