Hickory Museum of Art in Hickory, NC, Features Works by Philip Moose

The Hickory Museum of Art in Hickory, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Catawba County Collects Philip Moose, on view in the Museum’s Shuford Gallery, through Sept. 25, 2011.

Moose was born in Newton, NC, in 1921 and resided in Blowing Rock, NC, for 35 years until his death in 2001. The exhibition includes over 30 paintings from local private collections, acquired primarily by people who knew Moose personally.

In this exhibition, changes in his style can be clearly seen as he reacted to the world around him. Moose traveled extensively, and the paintings in the show document his trips to Mexico, Egypt, Russia, Greece and more. The mountains of North Carolina were also a favorite subject, and numerous paintings depict Grandfather Mountain in all its splendor.
