Endless: The Artwork of William A. Newman

Please join us on Wednesday, March 26th from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in Gallery 31 for an opening reception.

I get ideas from everywhere, from photographs, from advertising, from dreams, and from other paintings.  I figure anything is mine to use, because it resides in my vision, my memory, and my dreams.  I take it and transform it into something better.

 --William A. Newman

For over 40 years, Bill Newman has been the beating heart of the Corcoran College of Art and Design.  Thousands of Corcoran students have learned his methods and techniques, but it is his unforgettable joy and openness in the process of making art, whatever shape that art might take, that is his legacy as an artist and educator.  The selection of his work exhibited in Endless shows his ongoing quest to explore new vocabularies and new possibilities.  The title of the exhibition is particularly appropriate; his influence, his humor, his teaching, and especially his art will continue… endlessly.
