FIELD TRIP: “The Wolfe Family Legacy” at the Mississippi Museum of Art

Join us on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, as we travel to Jackson, Mississippi to view "The Wolfe Family Legacy" exhibition at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson Mississippi. The exhibition features 100 works by Dixie Art Colony artists Karl Ferdinand Wolfe, Mildred Nungester Wolfe, and their daughter Elizabeth "Bebe" Wolfe. Karl and Mildred met at the Dixie Art Colony and later married.  Their daughter Bebe Wolfe will be our tour guide.

Karl and Mildred Wolfe were the patriarch and matriarch of one of Mississippi’s most influential artist-families. The Wolfe’s impact on the community was significant. They were teachers at Millsaps College and active participants in Allison’s Wells Art Colony, the Municipal Art Gallery, and the Mississippi Art Association. They were likewise well known for their Wolfe Studio, established in 1946. They worked in a wide range of media—painting, mosaic, printmaking, stained glass, and ceramics. The studio tradition, as well as creative excellence, is continued by their daughter, Elizabeth (Bebe) Wolfe, whose work is also included in the exhibition.  |  More about Karl Wolfe  |  More about Mildred Wolfe
