Yumi Hogan, Breath of Dawn 1, 2017, Sumi ink and acrylic on canvas

This exhibition will present a selection of First Lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan’s recent paintings.  Working in the long tradition of East Asian and Western landscape painting, Mrs. Hogan’s work ethereally evokes the spirit of natural serenity and invites introspective contemplation.  Her work blends traditional Sumi ink painting techniques with acrylic and mixed media that draw upon the artist’s Korean roots and embrace her current life experiences.  Mrs. Hogan received her BFA from the Maryland Insitute College of Art (MICA), Baltimore, MD, and her MFA from American University, Washington, D.C.  She currently serves as Adjunct Professor of Drawing at MICA and has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in Annapolis, MD, Washington, D.C., New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Seoul, South Korea.

The Singer Memorial Gallery was established in 1949 by the Museum’s founder, Hagerstown native Anna Brugh Singer (1873-1962), as a tribute to her husband, artist William Henry Singer, Jr. (1868 – 1943). The diverse art collection they amassed, and of which over a hundred works were donated to the Museum, conveys the story of their lives as American expatriates in Norway and art collectors, while presenting compelling and significant works reflecting American, Dutch, and French trends of the late nineteenth-century.

Opened in 2013, the current installation was organized by guest curator, Hollis McCullough, to display the tastes of the Singers and highlight the significant works of art they contributed to the Museum. Artists in the installation include Willard Metcalf, Childe Hassam, Adolphe Joseph Monticelli, Gustave Courbet, and Pierre-Auguste Rodin.
