June Harwood Gets a Traveling Show
|June Harwood, untitled (Loop Series), 1966. Pomona College Collection. Gift of the June Harwood Charitable Trust|
Pomona College's Benton Museum of Art is organizing the first museum survey of L.A. Hard-Edge painter June Harwood (1933-2015). "June Harwood: Paintings" will appear at the Benton Aug. 23, 2023, to Jan. 7., 2024, and travel to several venues, starting with Utah State University's Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.
Harwood was married to critic Jules Langser, who coined the term "Hard-Edge" painting, yet she was long in the shadow of her male contemporaries. The Benton exhibition will include a group of paintings donated to Pomona College by the artist's trust.
