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.
