Dowling Walsh Galleries is pleased to announce that Columbus State University opened the Bo Bartlett Center, an 18,000-square-foot exhibition space and learning center dedicated to American realism. Housed in a converted textile mill, the center features many of Bartlett’s epochal paintings, as well as the work of the artists who have influenced him, including many from Maine.

The Bo Bartlett Center will explore creativity and learning within the context of the work and studio practice of the painter and Columbus, Georgia native Bo Bartlett. The Center is a unique partnership between a living mid-career artist and a state university, and will feature a range of changing exhibitions and programs.
