ASHLAND, VA.- The Flippo Gallery of Randolph-Macon College is presenting an exhibition of works by New York artist, Peri Schwartz, titled 45 Years, Paintings, Drawings and Prints.

Schwartz's work stand on the boundary line between representation and abstraction. Process is paramount in Schwartz's work. With each painting, drawing, and print, Schwartz asks questions of her visual perception rather than seeking answers. Her subjects include the interior of her New Rochelle artist’s studio, bottles and jars decisively filled with brightly colored tinctures, and self-confident self-portraits. Her media ranges from oil paint and charcoal to aquatint and monotype collages. Like Mondrian, she is enthralled with the grid. In many of her works she imposes intersecting verticals and horizontals, both physically applied to her subject matter and subsequently painted, as a method of deeply investigating her subject matter. As measures are to music, Schwartz’s grid grounds her mark-making and paradoxically sets her compositions free.

Schwartz's work can be found in many public and museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. We are honored to show 45 years of her oeuvre at Flippo Gallery.

The exhibition will run through March 29, 2019. The Flippo Gallery is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by appointment. Email director, Kristen Peyton ( for questions, directions, or special appointments.
