Contemporary Artist Jim Muehlemann To Exhibit At U.Va.’s Fayerweather Gallery

January 6, 2002--

WHO: Jim Muehlemann

WHAT: Exhibit — “Blackwater”

WHEN: Jan. 17 through Feb. 14
Opening reception, Friday, Jan. 17, 5 to 7 p.m.

WHERE: Fayerweather Gallery

On Jan. 17, Fayerweather Gallery opens an exhibition of paintings by contemporary artist Jim Muehlemann.

Muehlemann’s abstract paintings resist categorization. Artist and U.Va. studio art faculty member Elizabeth Stark describes Muehlemann’s “Blackwater #9” as “distinct, yet unrecognizable” and “revolving…between the earthly and the unknown.” The paintings require close examination to distinguish where and how this subtle blurring occurs.

Since 1970 Muehlemann has exhibited in one-man shows in New York and Philadelphia. His most recent exhibit was at the Pamela Auchincloss Gallery in New York. He has participated in numerous group exhibits including a 1999 show, “Old Dreams, New Dreams: Painting by Jim and Kathy Muehlemann,” at Randolph-Macon Women’s College’s Maier Museum of Art in Lynchburg.

He has won several awards, and his work has been reviewed in publications including Art News, Arts Magazine and The New York Times.

Muehlemann earned a B.F.A. from the University of Illinois and an M.F.A. from Syracuse University. He is currently assistant professor of art at Randolph-Macon Women’s College.

An opening reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, Jan. 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Muehlemann will give an artist’s lecture on Thursday, Jan. 23, 5 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 160.

Fayerweather Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
