November 15–January 11: HAROLD GARDE: ABEX TO NEO-EXPRESSIONISM. Some Risks Are Rewarded is a three-act exhibition curated by art historian, Dr. Edward Robinson. Painter and printmaker Harold Garde, whose extraordinary achievements in Abstract and Figurative Expressionism, from the 1950s onwards, make a significant yet under-recognized contribution to Post-War American art. His sevendecade career spans the New York School of Abstract Expressionists’ second generation of the 1950s–1960s; continues with the figurative, mythic possibilities of Neo-Expressionism in the 1980s–1990s; and remains vitally inventive to present day. This exhibition will feature representative selections of Garde’s major bodies of work in painting, drawing, and prints, revealing his early and vigorous engagement with Abstract Expressionism as well as the persistent innovation of his mature artistic experimentation.
