WORKS ON PAPER

Picture 04021 November – 23 December, 2008

On 21 November 2008 WORKS ON PAPER, an exhibition of fine original watercolors and drawings from 1940 to the present, will open at ACME Fine Art, Boston. The artwork of more than twenty-five artists has been selected by gallery director David Cowan for this first-of its kind, exhibition for the gallery. A reception from six to eight on Friday evening (the 21st) will mark the opening. The exhibition will run through Tuesday 23 December.

ACME Fine Art’s WORKS ON PAPER will feature artwork that was created as early as 1915 and as recently as last week. Early modern artists whose work will be included in the exhibition are Werner Drewes, Blance Lazzell, Kenneth Stubbs, Charmion Von Wiegand, and Hananiah Harari. A fine tonal watercolor titled Bowery Beauty by Reginald Marsh will figure prominently in the selections from the first half of the 20th century, and a very rare early monotype by Edwin Dickinson round off the selection of work created early in the century.

Fine original examples of mid-century artwork by Richard Filipowski, Hans Hofmann, Jack Tworkov, George McNeil, Maurice Freedman, and Stephen Pace will be featured. Two Provincetown watercolors that date from the 1950s by the noted figurative expressionist painter Lester Johnson will also be on display. An unusual early surrealist collage dating from the 1940s by avant-garde artist Andre Racz also promises to be one of the exhibition highlights. Noteworthy examples by contemporary artists Vincent Castagnacci, Hermine Ford, George Lloyd, and Robert Kipniss will figure prominently in the exhibition as well.
