J.H. Miller Article April, 1928
Clipping of the article reviewing the Spring Exhibit

This is the 3rd time in the 1920's (1921, 1922, 1928) Woodward exhibited paintings at the Miller gallery but his first and only "one man show."


Right: Springfield Union, by Jeanette Matthews

"In a city where one-man shows are as rare as they are in Springfield a chance to see 36 of Robert Strong Woodward's latest pictures is a treat indeed."


On the clipping itself, you will see the handwritten note by RSW, "a good article."

This exhibition is related to two other exhibitions, Lyman Exhibition, 1926 and Littlecote Gallery, 1929. Fourteen (14) of the 37 pieces of work appeared in the other two exhibitions and only one, The Friendly Doorway, appeared in all 3 exhibitions.


Also noteworthy with regard to this exhibition was the featuring of Woodward's chalk drawings and it preceded his 1929 Pynchon Gallery Exhibition, Springfield, MA, featuring only 'crayons' (chalk drawings). For more on this, see also Jeanette Matthews 1929 article Springfield Republican, 1929
