Join us for a curator talk, led by Dr. Mark Cole, associate curator of American painting and sculpture at the Cleveland
Museum of Art. Although Carroll
Cloar created deeply personal paintings intimately inspired by his Mid-South
surroundings, his images have strong affinities with a
wide-ranging movement in American art known as Magic Realism.
This illustrated presentation looks at Cloar’s work amid the fascinating backdrop
of magic realist painting, including such famed practitioners as Andrew Wyeth.
