Preparing for Ed: The Art and Artifacts of Edmund Lewandowski - Precisionist

Rutledge Gallery

As both a precisionist painter and an art educator, Edmund Lewandowski played a leading role in the development of American modernism. The former chair of the Department of Art and Design at Winthrop from 1973 – 1984, he was committed to Winthrop students and the surrounding community. “Preparing for Ed: The Art and Artifacts of Edmund Lewandowski – Precisionist” will bring together artifacts donated to the university by Ed and his wife Dolores that exemplify his inspiration as an artist and give a glimpse into his life.  This exhibition is in preparation for the first major retrospective exhibition of Lewandowski’s artwork coming to Winthrop fall 2010. Titled “
Edmund Lewandowski:
Precisionism and Beyond
” and organized by the Flint Institute of Arts, Winthrop University Galleries will host the inaugural opening for this traveling exhibition on Monday, Sept. 6, 2010.
