This exhibition on the hundredth anniversary of Morris Graves' birth is a tribute to his life and work, curated by Gail Severn, a Graves admirer since her early college years, includes almost fifty pieces for sale. The Gail Severn Gallery has presented Morris Graves' work in more than 20 exhibitions, including nine solo exhibitions over the last 30 years. In addition, the gallery has helped support and participated in a number of museum exhibitions and traveling shows featuring Graves' work.

This exhibition includes pieces from the early 1930's thru the mid 1990's. Graves' spirituality sets him apart from the mainstream of the 20th century modernists. Thomas Wolf said, "He is one of the very few 20th century artists for whom the creation of art is an act of reverence and perhaps the only one of stature for who it is largely a means of lovingly (but persistently) reaching upward, outward, and inward toward greater and simpler dimensions of being and evidence of the divine. Here he stands quite alone."
