Paul Keene @ LaSalle University Art Museum

September 28th, 2016

Plans for La Salle University Art Museum’s new 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. Bernstein’s gift of two large 1950s paintings make LaSalle the perfect museum to organize this exhibition which will travel in 2017 to the North Carolina Central University Art Museum and the Georgia College Museum of Fine Arts.

La Salle’s exhibition opens September 28, 2016 and remains on view thru December 2, 2016.  La Salle University is located at 1900 Olney Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19141, artmuseum@lasalle.edu
We hope you will see this important exhibition.

Miniature: Small Comtemporary Works @ University of Wyoming Art Museum

June 18th, 2015

Artists have worked in the small-scale genre of miniature art for centuries, dating back to the 15th century illuminated manuscripts of the Far East and Europe. Miniature art is characterized by highly skilled and painstaking techniques that draw the viewers’ eye deeper into the world for close inspection. The works in Miniature: Small Contemporary Works revisit the history of small work through a variety of contemporary approaches. Artists in this international exhibition include Eric Tillinghast, Marie Harnett, Gregory Halili, Lucy Mackenzie, Lynne Clibanoff. and Matthew Schofield. Lynne Clibanoff’s work employs optical techniques of forced perspective, which also date back to the Italian Renaisance. Objects are constructed or manipulated to appear smaller or larger than they are. Lynne’s unique approach is to build miniature structures that appear to be much larger and deeper and full of natural light.
The exhibition continues at the museum through 8 August 2015. http://www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum/

Fresh Prints: The Nineties to Now @ Cleveland Museum of Art

May 16th, 2015

A selection of prints from the past 25 years, this exhibition showcases the printmaking techniques of a variety of contemporary artists. While some, including Julia Wachtel and Annette Lemieux, use printmaking to comment on contemporary political events, others, such as Lesley Dill and Louise Bourgeois, use the medium to express personal, feminist concerns. Traditional landscape themes interest Ellsworth Kelly and Rosemarie Trockel while Lucian Freud and Chuck Close prefer figurative subjects. Abstraction also remains important, exemplified by such artists as Terry Winters, Steven Ford, Tom Nozkowski, Richard Serra, and Julie Mehretu. On view in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery thru July 26, 2015
