SYRACUSE, NY.- The Everson Museum of Art
presents the Jules Olitski: An Inside View, a collection of 40 rarely-exhibited, self-portrait and abstract prints in a variety of media. The exhibition will be on view November 13, 2010 January 16, 2011.
An Inside View features intaglio, silkscreen, lithograph and monotype prints that span the artists career of over five decades. Olitskis works are celebrated for his large-format, lyrical abstractions that shimmer with color. The nuanced colors, loopy shapes and wavy boundaries of his print work are all unique impressions.
We are proud to showcase a collection of one of Americas pre-eminent painters, Jules Olitski, said Debora Ryan, Everson Museum of Art senior curator. Though Olitski is less well-known for his smaller, more intimate prints, each of his works commemorates a joyous celebration of life that also serves as a meditation on mortality.
An opening night reception is scheduled for November 12, from 5:30- 8:00p.m. to preview Jules Olitski: An Inside View, as well as the Haudenosaunee: Elements and Yui Kugimiya: Live Paintings exhibitions. The event is free for Everson Museum members and $10 for non-members at the door. Refreshments and light hors doeuvres will be available before previewing the exhibitions.
The exhibition was organized by Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro, Vt., in collaboration with Knoedler and Company, New York, N.Y.
