BLOSSOMING, focuses on a new body of work by Lowell Boyers, in conversation with a selection of works by Françoise Gilot, Suzanne Duchamp, Raoul Dufy, Marsden Hartley and others. The theme, broadly, is the flower, as we look back to the summer and ahead to the winter. But as we explore these new works by Boyers, we think not so much of static flowers, but rather, of our dynamic selves, as in James Wright’s poem, “Blessing,”That if I stepped out of my body I would break / Into blossom.
September 8th - October 21st, 2023

Picasso/Matisse: Souvenirs, a modest contribution to the worldwide slate of blockbuster exhibitions commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso. Offering an eclectic mix of 25 works of art, rare books and manuscripts and pieces of memorabilia, this show offers souvenirs from not only Picasso but also a smaller selection of works by Henri Matisse. Arguably the two most important artists of the 20th century, the two were closer in spirit than any other artists of their time.

Fully Furnished brings 40 pieces to the spotlight including Weissglass's newest body of work, a series of paintings where antique tables, sofas, chairs and wash basin stands twirl through richly colored landscapes in a playful and sometimes cacophonous dance. While figures and flowers also populate the scenes, it is these furniture elements which steal the show, asserting themselves even through the richly textured and colorful terrain which surrounds, often dwarfing the people who attempt to alight, climb or straddle them. Emerging from the homebound period of the pandemic, these quirky and exuberant works celebrate the quotidian and, through the artist's vision, just as an innovative designer can do with a chair or table, transform what is familiar into a vision both magical and extraordinary.
