Exhibit of paintings by Philip Geiger opens at W&L Sept. 15

wl university“Inside/Outside,” paintings by artist and teacher Philip Geiger, will be on display at the McCarthy Gallery in Holekamp Hall at Washington and Lee University from Sept. 15 to Dec. 15.

The exhibit is sponsored by W&L’s Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics and is free and open to the public.

Geiger’s figurative and cityscape paintings are done from observation. His work has been described as “masterful” and “psychological,” drawing from everyday experience as well as from other painters such as Degas, Vermeer and Balthus.

He is known for his highly realistic interior domestic scenes with figures sleeping, gathered around a dinner table or sitting alone.

Geiger’s art is represented in more than 10 public collections, including Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock, Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus, Ga., Citibank in New York, Southeast Bank in Miami and the Virginia State Bar in Richmond. His art has been in more than 75 solo and selected group exhibitions.

In 1983, Geiger joined the McIntire Department of Art of the University of Virginia to teach figure drawing and introductory drawing. Previously he was on the faculty of Colorado State University.

He earned his B.F.A. from Washington University and his M.F.A. from Yale University.

The McCarthy Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
