The show, which runs through September 30, 2014, includes Gillett’s paintings, drawings, and sketches made during his extensive travels, along with field notes and diaries. It will introduce him as an artist to many people who only know him as a curator and teacher.
As the ACP notes on their website, “Through exhibitions, symposia, his generosity as a teacher and his genius at friendship, he has served as a catalyst to many developments in Pre-Columbian studies. Gillett’s paintings were inspired by his impressions and studies of places, people and artifacts he came across during his travels to archeological sites in Central America.”
