HUNTINGTON, NY.- The Heckscher Museum of Art presents Stan Brodsky: Retrospective. On view August 17 through December 1, 2013, this exhibition celebrates the career of Stan Brodsky, one of Long Island’s most prominent contemporary artists.

For 50 years Stan Brodsky has created abstract works of lyrical beauty inspired by the Long Island landscape and his travels in the United States and abroad. His multi-layered paintings exude dynamic energy and reveal an elegant sensitivity to color rare among his contemporaries. The exhibition traces the artist’s evolution from early representational works that focus on architectonic city structures, through the minimalist landscapes executed during the artist’s early years on Long Island, to the Abstract Expressionist works that manifest Brodsky’s deepest engagement with the painting process itself.

In speaking about the exhibition, Lisa Chalif, Museum Curator, said “Stan Brodsky has made Huntington his home for almost 50 years and during that time has been included in many group exhibitions at the Museum, as well as the subject of two solo shows, the most recent more than 20 years ago. Since then, Stan’s work has continued to evolve towards dense, multi-layered compositions full of animated gesture, attesting to his engagement with the process of painting itself. This retrospective spans almost his entire career, including recent work executed earlier this year.”

Stan Brodsky is Professor Emeritus at LIU Post and his work is included in many public and private collections. Brodsky and Margy Hargraves, Museum Trustee and past Chair of the Board, will be honored at the Museum’s Celebrate Achievement Benefit on November 15, 2013 for their significant contributions to the arts and culture on Long Island.

Also opening on August 17 and on view through November 24, 2013, is Recent Acquisitions. This installation features more than two dozen works acquired by the Museum since 2010 representing a wide range of style and subject matter. Highlights include selected landscape painting, abstraction, and photography, including work by Nicolas Carone, Jiri Kolar, Thomas Moran, Theodoros Stamos, and Max Weber, among others.
