Cleveland Collects: Cheryl Warrick @ Wasmer Gallery

June 14th, 2018

Dolan/Maxwell and the Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery at Ursuline College are delighted to present a new exhibition of prints and paintings on paper by Cheryl Warrick. The exhibition begins with works made in 1997 and will debut 2 brand new series of paintings. Most of the works will be loaned by Cleveland area collectors along with an impression of the color etching, Peace Makes Plenty which Warrick created for the Print Club of Cleveland in 2006. Collectors in Cleveland became aware of Cheryl Warrick via Dolan/Maxwell at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s annual Fine Print Fair. Strong support for Warrick’s work began very soon after Dolan/Maxwell introduced her work at the fair.
Cleveland Collects: Cheryl Warrick is the first exhibition to survey works from an important era of Warrick’s career when her paintings and prints began to be exhibited and collected internationally.

The exhibition remains on view from June 15 to August 15 2018.   Opening Reception Friday, June 15 5:00 – 8:00 PM

Anders Bergstrom solo exhibition

June 6th, 2018

Dolan/Maxwell and C R Ettinger are pleased to present a collaborative exhibition of recent works by Anders Bergstrom. Works in the exhibition are selections from an ongoing series of meticulously made etchings printed and folded by hand to imitate the common brown paper bag. Pop Art and Photo­realism are reference points but ultimately his methods and the act of making are what motivates Bergstrom.

“Anders Bergstrom makes work about process in the guise of product. The result is a series of printed objects that pay homage to the individual labor of mass production by undertaking the rigorous process of reproduction by hand. The origin of the series is a suite of nine prints based on the bottoms of paper bags distributed by Duro, the largest manufacturer of brown paper lunch bags. Duro prints the name of the employee who produced each bag and the date of its manufacture on its underside like an artist’s signature, ironically authenticating an object destined to become crumpled detritus or litter in a street gutter. In Suite of 9 Prints, 2011 Bergstrom isolates the signature on each bag, enlarges it and reproduces it as an art object.”   Eleree Edros, catalog essay 2016

“Bergstrom makes approximations of reality with his constructed bags.  These are not appropriation, rather a more painstaking production using printmaking to create something intended as useful, sturdy and cheap.  Each bag has it’s own personality; a lean, a crease, a tattered saw tooth edge. What plays out there is text, color and form. Once assembled, the sculpture shows almost no marks of creation.  They are full of nothing.  It would be easy to think of them as readymades, when the reality is that the process of approximation gives them more of a kinship with Vija Celmins than Marcel Duchamp.”

Jeff Bergman, FOLD in 1,000 words; Atlas Newsletter April 24, 2015

A closing celebration with Anders Bergstrom for this exhibition will be held Thursday June 28, 2018, 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Gallery hours at C R Ettinger Studios are Monday through Friday, 12- 6 PM.   It is always a good idea to call ahead.

Visit us at the 2017 IFPDA Print Fair

October 22nd, 2017

We are proud to share at the 2017 IFPDA Print Fair an extraordinary group of works made at Atelier 17 in New York City during the 1940s.  Atelier 17 was the melting pot as the capital of the art world transitioned from Paris to New York.  Stanley William Hayter’s friends from the Surrealist movement Joan Miró and Andre Masson as well as Wassily Kandinsky were sitting out WWII and the devastating aftermath of occupied Paris in New York.  While at Atelier 17 they encountered younger artists with new formalist approaches & American infused energy including Louise Bourgeois, Fred Becker, Alice Trumbull Mason, Krishna Reddy and Gabor Peterdi.

We will have superb and rare examples by each of these artists, all from Hayter’s own collection and most made in the 1940s.  Included are master works – prints & plaster prints by Hayter.  The impressions made from inked copper plates cast into plaster and later carved are especially rare as well as forcefully tactile & dramatic.  Printmaking and sculpture merge in these groundbreaking, hybrid works.

New dates and a new venue mark the return of  the IFPDA Print Fair.  We have a strong collection of rare, Modernist prints from the 1930s and 1940s by Morris Blackburn, Judith Rothschild, Benton Spruance and African American masters Norman Lewis and Dox Thrash.

:  we have a special group of rare and important works about music.   Fred Becker’s Jam Session II, 1954, Benton Spruance’s 1941 Philadelphia Orchestra Mural Study, and the corresponding lithograph, Arrangement for Drums; along with Singing Saints a 1945 lithograph by Sargent Johnson and Elizabeth Catlett’s El Canto.

We will also ave an excellent selection of prints and works on paper by artists working in the US and Europe. Come see exciting works by Contemporary Rachel Selekman, Steven Ford, Donald Teskey, Peter Brooke, Michael Canning, Cheryl Warrick, Nona Hershey and David ShapiroWe will also introduce a group of brand new, hot-off-the-press works by Victoria Burge, Amze Emmons, Shelley Thorstensen and John Walker.

Paul Keene: Post War Explorations in Painting @ Leland Galleries, Georgia College

September 3rd, 2017

Plans for the current exhibition, Paul Keene: Post War Explorations in Painting began with the discovery of paintings stored in the attic of the Keene home. Hidden way for decades, these works are a rich record of Paul’s early career. His GI Bill opportunity to work in Paris was soon followed by a John Hay Whitney Fellowship which supported a two year residency in at the Centre d’Arte, Port-au-Prince, Haiti (1951-1953).
The exhibition celebrates a too little known period of Paul’s career. The paintings are hybrids of Paul’s exposure to the early Modern & Contemporary art he found in Paris and the authentic West African cultural traditions he sought in Haiti. Gallery shows upon his return from both sojourns sold out thanks to the astute Philadelphia collector and philanthropist, Ben Bernstein. Georgia College’s Leland Galleries presentation is on thru 15 September 2017.
