      Description:


      Julia Elizabeth Tolbert was a native of Ninety Six, SC. She held the MA from the University of Georgia where she studied under Lamar Dodd. During her lifetime she worked variously in Athens, GA, several south Carolina locations; Cashiers, NC; and Syracuse, NY. Her active period was through the 1940s into the mid-1950s. Because she was not interested in selling her work, or even showing it very much, except for a few museums, such as the Gibbs Gallery in Charleston, she is now unknown.

      In 2011, the Tolbert family donated nearly the entire life-work corpus of her art to Wofford College, including paintings in oil and watercolor, drawings, prints, and ceramics. This exhibition of a very small portion of the collection is the first of several intended to bring a worthy artist back to the public eye.

      Exhibition April 13 - June 1.

      Opening reception, Friday, April 13, 4 - 6:00-p.m.
