Opening on Thursday, July 18, 2019, it spans seven decades, including drawings by thirteen artists, from Rosalyn Drexler’s found-paper work incorporating naive lettering to a meticulously rendered Mark Greenwold graphite composition.
Works in the exhibition vary in scale from a 60-by-80-inch diptych by Gladys Nilsson to a Richard Van Buren measuring less than two-by-six inches. The artists have used a wide range of materials to make these works. Allan D’Arcangelo embellished found photographs with acrylic, ink, and collage. Ralph Humphrey used casein and flocking to make his drawing. Gladys Nilsson chose watercolor, while Howardena Pindell turned to manila file folders and glitter. The works by Paul Feeley and Nicholas Krushenick variably make use of watercolor, acrylic, and ink on paper. Despite the shared medium, each work displays a quality of line that is immediately recognizable and unique to the artist.
The exhibition also includes work by Peter Blake, Art Green, Al Loving, Roy McMakin, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, among others.
Garth Greenan Gallery is pleased to represent Peter Blake, Rosalyn Drexler, Art Green, Mark Greenwold, Roy McMakin, Gladys Nilsson, Howardena Pindell, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Richard Van Buren, and the Estates of Allan D'Arcangelo, Paul Feeley, Ralph Humphrey, Nicholas Krushenick, and Al Loving.
