Museum Plans Golf Exhibition

Lawrence took up golf at age 11 and grew up playing at Forest Park Golf Course in the New York borough of Queens.

Lawrence is a member of the Academy of Golf Art, a small collection of artists who will put their work on display Feb.

“It’s about golf, but it’s really about the academy,” said Kevin Grogan, director and curator of the Morris Museum.

The Academy of Golf Art: Artists of the Game Feb.

While the Morris Museum “exists in golf heaven,” just a few miles from Augusta National, Grogan noted, it only sporadically touches on the subject of golf.

In April 2015, the Morris Museum exhibited 11 original pieces by Hartough, best known for her landscape paintings of some of golf’s most famous holes.

Grogan said that he and Hartough, a member of the academy, began discussing the idea of an exhibit dedicated to the group’s work.

“She’s captured the essential qualities of the places where golf is played in ways that other people haven’t,” Grogan said.
