GLENS FALLS, NY.- The Hyde Collection opens The Prints of Sean Scully – an exhibition of the bold works of Irish-born, American painter. The exhibition will be on display in The Hyde’s Charles R. Wood gallery through November 2, 2008.

Sean Scully is an international artist best known for reviving abstract painting in the 1980s. Born in Dublin and now an American citizen, Scully has made prints in professional workshops in New York, Munich, Barcelona, and Tampere, Finland. His magnificent compositions resonate with personal interactions to the world around him. The selected words provide a rare opportunity to view luminous graphic images created by one of the leaders of abstract painting today. Using his instantly-recognizable block shapes, Scully’s richly layered prints explore such themes as the play of light and shadow, the expressive qualities of color, and the spatial relationships created by the edges of his distinctive abstract forms.

Organized and circulated by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, this exhibition will feature fifty-one etchings, aquatints, and woodcuts, as well as lithographs recently made by Scully. The Smithsonian is the only institution in the United States to own a master set of the artist’s prints. This traveling exhibition completes its tour at The Hyde Collection. Previous display venues include The Smithsonian, as well as the Naples Museum of Art (Florida) and the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Minnesota). Local sponsors for the exhibition are Ames Goldsmith and Jointa Galusha.
