About Eugene J. Martin
The Masur Museum of Art is excited to announce the recent acquisition of twenty-four works of art from the estate of the artist Eugene J. Martin. The Masur's exhibition celebrates Martin's legacy as a visual artist in Louisiana and around the world. Martin studied painting at the Corcoran School of Art and Design in Washington D.C. His often humorous and highly abstract paintings, collages, drawings, and photographs primarily deal with the concepts of time and memory. He has exhibited at Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art, MS; Louisiana State University Museum of Art, LA; Walter Anderson Museum of Art, MS; New Orleans African American Museum, LA; Lilly Gallery, Duke University; and Michel Rooryck Gallery, Ghent, Belgium. Martin's art also resides in the permanent collections of the Munich Museum of Modern Art, Munich, Germany; Ogden Museum of Southern Art, LA; University of Delaware Museums, DE; Schomburg Center for Black Culture, NY; Sheldon Museum of Art, NE; and Stowitts Museum, CA.
