Frost Gallery - Olive Pemberton: A Century of Beauty

Exhibition on Display: September 24 - December 11, 2021 | Works by Olive Pemberton

This exhibition recognizes the accomplishments of Olive Pemberton in a retrospective survey of her career work. Pemberton studied and exhibited with artists of the Fort Worth Circle. Her work ranges stylistically from realism to abstraction. Her admiration for artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, and Amadeo Modigliani can be seen in some paintings as she explores adaptations of technique, color and composition. Some of her signature works are highly abstract, with vertical veiled panels of color setting off simple abstracted figures and trees in the landscape. She most often painted with oil and casein, but also enjoyed sculpting with clay. The exhibition is primarily drawn from the Pemberton family collection, but other works from private collections are included, such as Morris Matson, Dr. and Mrs. Harry Froeschke, Ken Jackson, Greg Dow and others.
