New Art Exhibit in Holekamp Hall

Washington and Lee University’s Williams School of Commerce, Politics, and Economics announces a new exhibit in Holekamp Hall’s McCarthy Gallery. “Inside/Outside: Paintings by Philip Geiger” will run from Sept. 15 through Dec. 15, 2014.

Artist Philip Geiger paints cityscapes and the human figure from everyday observation, and is known for his use of light, loose brush strokes and narrative images of family life. His work has been reviewed by The New York Times, Art in America, ArtNews and the New Criterion.

Geiger has been an art professor at the University of Virginia, where he teaches painting and drawing, for more than 30 years. He earned his BFA from Washington University and his MFA from Yale University. He lives in Charlottesville with his wife, the painter Elizabeth Geiger, and their two children.

Gallery hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Entrance is free. Free parking is available in Washington and Lee University’s parking garage, which you can find on the university’s campus map.
