For more than 25 years, The Phillips Collection has held a staff show to feature the works of artists employed at the museum. In 1984, the staff show was endowed by the family of James McLaughlin, an accomplished still-life painter who was a student at the Phillips Gallery Art School and also worked at the museum for 50 years. Until his death in 1982, McLaughlin played an active role in the museum’s activities as a gallery preparator and curator.
Note: An opening reception will take place on Thursday, August 10, 5-7 pm. The evening will allow visitors to hear directly from the artists about their featured work.
