This exhibition introduces the work of an American Impressionist from Holly Springs, Mississippi. Kate Freeman Clark enrolled in an oil painting class taught by William Merritt Chase on Long Island, New York in the summer of 1896. A prolific artist, between 1896 and 1923 she produced over one thousand works of art, including: still life, landscape, and portrait drawings and paintings.

There has been a renewed interest in Clark’s work and career. A new book entitled The Artist’s Sketch: A Biography of Painter Kate Freeman Clark by Carolyn J. Brown and a recent exhibition at The University of Mississippi Museum entitled Lasting Impressions: Restoring Kate Freeman Clark has introduced her work to a new generation of art patrons. Works for this exhibition are on loan from Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
