Born in Summit, Mississippi, Hull was a revered and influential figure in Mississippi and generally in the South.

She studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Daniel Garber and Hugh Breckenridge. She returned to Mississippi and taught at Hillman College. She also traveled around the United States and studied at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center with Robert Reid and John F. Carlson. In 1922, she enrolled at the Art Students League Frank Vincent Dumond and Robert Vonnoh. She traveled in Europe studying under George Elmer Browne in France and Spain, and in Morocco, Canada, and Mexico. She was inspired by exotic locales, rich coloration, and varied architectural forms. Hull was experimental and interested in exploring materials, techniques and abstraction. She exhibited at Art Institute, Chicago; American Watercolor Society; Butler Art Institute, Youngstown, Ohio; Ringling Museum, Sarasota, Florida; Southeastern Annuals, Atlanta; Delta Annuals, Memphis; All-American National Shows, New York City; Autumn Salon, Paris; New York World's Fair (1939) and the San Francisco Golden Gate Exposition (1939).

  Jarrell, Wadsworth

Wadsworth Jarrell (born 1929) “Dizzy and the Bird”, mixed media, 24” x 21”, signed lower left. This painting is in excellent condition.

Wadsworth Jarrell is an African American artist who was born in Albany, Georgia in 1929 and educated at the Art Institute of Chicago. He is one of the founding members of AFRICOBRA, (African Commune Of Bad Relevant Artists) a revolutionary artist school of thought founded in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement. During the 1960’s and early 1970’s a new social and political awareness developed among African-Americans. This is the foundation upon which Wadsworth Jarrell has built his work. Mr. Jarrell feels his art is a reflection of the attitudes, the many colors, the style, the hip, and the rhythm of his people. Often found in his work are images of horse races, jazz musicians, and the African culture. As an artist he has dedicated himself to creating social imagery that intrudes upon the thoughts and jars the senses of his viewers. As an integral part of our local community the work of Wadsworth Jarrell is a part of the permanent collection of both the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Bureau of Cultural Affairs.

“Southern Palms along the Beach” oil on canvas, signed lower right, 16” x 20”, This painting is in excellent condition in a period frame, also in excellent condition. Born/lived: Born in Savannah, Georgia Known: Oelschig’s paintings were past experiences in the city of her birth, summer trips back to Savannah, and Central Park in New York City. Studied: Educated in Savannah’s public schools, where art instruction was part of the curriculum. She began her college career locally, at the newly opened Armstrong Junior College (now Armstrong Atlantic State University), and took private art lessons with Emma Cheves Wilkins. In 1937, Oelschig graduated with a certificate in liberal arts and transferred to the University of Georgia, arriving at the same time as Lamar Dodd was establishing the art department there. The new department had few students, and Dodd exerted a great influence on Oelschig’s work. She studied nonobjective painting with Bill Hendrix, studied briefly with William Scharf, and experimented with different media including automobile lacquer, ink, acrylic, and papier-mâche. Exhibited: The Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences was the site of her first solo exhibition, held in 1941. The exhibition, with a catalogue foreword written by Lamar Dodd, traveled to the Gertrude Herbert Institute in Augusta, Georgia. She exhibited with the Southern States Art League, the Alabama Art Association, and the Southeastern Artists Association, the faculty exhibit held at the Montgomery Museum of Art, the Savannah Art Association, the Columbia Museum of Art in South Carolina, and at the Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Feragil Gallery and ACA Galleries in New York. On March 4, 1997, Augusta Oelschig was honored as one of Georgia’s Women in the Visual Arts. She was the subject of a video produced by the Telfair Museum of Art in 1995. Augusta Oelschig died on July 24, 2000, while anticipating the retrospective exhibition of her work that was held at the Telfair Museum of Art from September through November 2000. Taught: Dodd had recommended her for a wartime teaching position in the art department of Alabama Polytech Institute (now Auburn University) where she taught drawing and painting from 1941 until September 1943. In 1946, she established an art school with an initial class of thirty-five students, which was located in the Thomas Gamble Building.
