The first meeting of the 50th Anniversary Year of The Society will be Charles Stuckey, Curator of the 20th Century Department of Painting & Sculpture of The Art Institute of Chicago as the featured speaker. Mr. Stuckey assumed the position of Curator of the 20th Century Department of Painting & Sculpture at The Art Institute two years ago, after serving as Curator of Modern Painting at The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. He completed a Ph.D. in Art History in 1972, and then taught at a number of institutions including New York University, Johns Hopkins University and The University of Pennsylvania. He has worked on numerous exhibitions, most recently as co-curator for the show entitled The Art of Paul Gauguin. His list of publications is extensive and includes a catalogue titled “Scott Burton Chairs”, published in 1983. Mr. Stuckey is anxious to share with the Society his enthusiasm for the work of artist Scott Burton, his topic for this meeting.
