Govinda Gallery, Liza Phillips, and The Centennial Celebration of The Phillips Collection

by Chris Murray on June 17, 2021

This is the centennial year celebration of The Phillips Collection in Washington, the first museum of modern art in America. It was my great pleasure to welcome Marjorie Phillips, the co-founder of the Phillips collection, to Govinda Gallery on September 16, 1983, for the opening of her granddaughter Liza Phillips wonderful exhibition of her art at Govinda.

Mrs. Phillips was presented a copy of Illuminations From The Bhagavad-Gita by gallery director Chris Murray, which she is seen holding in the photo below. Illuminations co-author and artist Kim Waters is enjoying introducing David Murray to Mrs. Phillips. David Murray is now the administrative director of Govinda Gallery.
