2017 Fleischman Lecture Perpetual Invention: The Printed Work of Frank Stella
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We hope you will join us for the reception, beginning at 5:30 P.M., in honor of Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective and collector Jordan Schnitzer. Afterwards, please stay for a presentation by Dr. Richard H. Axsom, exhibition curator and the author of the catalogue raisonné of Stella’s prints, Frank Stella Prints (2014.)

Axsom will share personal insights about organizing the exhibition and his long association with Frank Stella and his prints.  Axsom will also reveal the joys of working with Stella and affiliated arts professionals, including artist and master printer Kenneth Tyler. Additionally the program will examine Stella’s diverse stylistic explorations and serial working manner of the modern master over his long career.  A book signing of Frank Stella Prints: A Catalogue Raisonné will follow the presentation.

The Fleischman Lecture Series is sponsored by the Carolyn and Winton Blount Endowment in honor of Larry Fleischman a dynamic specialist and leader in the field of American art.  As president of Kennedy Galleries of New York, Fleischman played a role in many innovative ventures, raising international awareness of issues concerning American art. He served as a member of the Fine Arts Advisory Committee of the White House, co-founded the Archives of American Art (now part of the Smithsonian), and founded and published The American Art Journal. During the 1950s, along with his wife, Mr. Fleischman amassed one of the nation’s earliest collections of significant American art.

The Peaceable Kingdom and Landscape
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Artist Jacqueline Bishop featured in Natural Wonders: The Art of Jacqueline Bishop and Douglas Bourgeois will be sharing insight into her work, landscapes, and the politics behind her art.

Bishop’s paintings, drawings, and installations explore the long tradition of landscape painting and the environmental issues behind it. Her detailed works are close observations of the world she inhabits, exploring species extinction, climate politics, and eco-political injustice. In her works on paper Bishop uses natural materials drawn from the landscape to address environmental issues.

We hope you will stay for a reception in honor of the opening of the spring exhibitions afterward. This event is for members only. Not a member? Become one today!
