An exhibition of eight paintings and six drawings by Myron Stout will be shown at the Washburn Gallery from April 26 – June 29. The works were completed in Provincetown between 1950 and 1953. All the paintings are in color and the drawings are charcoal or graphite.
Myron Stout was born in 1908 in Denton, Texas, a small town some forty miles north of Dallas and Fort Worth. Stout’s early years were spent in Texas. In the late 1930s, Stout went to Honolulu where he taught and after serving in World War II, the artist moved to New York. About 1950 Stout settled permanently in Provincetown, where he died in 1987.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated brochure with excerpts from Selections from the Journals of Myron Stout published in 2005 by Midmarch Arts Press, New York, with an introduction written by Robert Storr and edited by Tina Dickey.
The Estate of Myron Stout is represented by the Washburn Gallery and Miles Bellamy. This is the fifth exhibition of works by Myron Stout organized by the Washburn Gallery since 1994.
