NEW YORK, NY.- Affirmation Arts, in association with The Andy Warhol Museum, present Warhol: Confections & Confessions, an exhibition of 53 unique vintage gelatin silver prints. The photographs, dating from c. 1974–1983 have never been seen outside of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and eight from the archives have never been previously exhibited. The exhibition presents Warhol as a fine art photographer in a way that is rarely seen; no celebrities, no pop—just portraits, still lifes and interiors.

A legendary artist, Andy Warhol is best known for his colorful pop art images of celebrities and Campbell’s soup cans, his hundreds of films, The Factory studio, “15 minutes of fame,” and his frequent appearances at Studio 54. Though his lifestyle and most popular work matched the decadence of the era, he also produced a considerable number of quieter, stripped, more thoughtful black-and-white works such as the eight-by-ten photographs in this exhibition.

“As Affirmation Arts approaches its fourth anniversary, it is a great honor to celebrate this unknown side of Andy with such limitedly exhibited works that reveal his unexpected talent as a fine art photographer,” said Marla Goldwasser, Director of Affirmation Arts. “We are grateful to The Andy Warhol Museum for the opportunity to present this exhibition, and are pleased to bring greater awareness to the museum and support its mission to galvanize audiences through creative interaction with the art and life of Andy Warhol.”

Warhol: Confections & Confessions, 8x10 B+W Photographs from The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh runs through May 5 and is complemented by a catalog of the same name with an essay by Eric C. Shiner, Director of The Andy Warhol Museum.
