Featured in this exhibition are works by Gifford Beal and John Storrs on loan from Kraushaar Galleries.
“In the early years of the last century, technology was providing artists with resources that were as new as their modern styles. Masonite was one of the most prevalently used of the new materials. This manufactured hardboard, which lies beneath the paint of innumerable 20th century artworks, was invented in Laurel, Mississippi, in 1924 by William H. Mason. In celebration, the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, founded in Laurel in 1923, presents this exhibition of American paintings on Masonite.”
