Ralph Henry Eck, Jr. Memorial Exhibition
"So, if there be a joyful noise though... not too loud, almost about anything,.. then, your day can be that toward the joy of a bird."
— Ralph Henry Eck, Jr., from his writings
In gratitude, we celebrate the life work of Millersville University alumnus, elementary school teacher, factory worker, Korean war veteran and visionary painter Ralph Henry Eck, Jr. (1930–2015.) Eck created in obscurity, outside of any external validation or recognition, solely to bring joy to his own days. He made paintings using layer upon layer of house paint over found-objects and string. Fifteen unique paintings will be shown for the first time ever.
Reception March 21, 2019, 5:30–7:00PM
