Charles Ephraim Burchfield—the primary focus of my curatorial career—evolved from tradition watercolor methodology to mastery of a unique language of expression, doing whatever it would take to construct his paintings. What I appreciate about watercolor I learned through him and his aberrant approach to the medium After more than 31 years at this museum, I channel Charles Burchfield—especially in appreciation of nature through the lens of art, music, and literature, with an amateur’s curiosity for science. - Nancy Weekly
