The Butler to show works of 14 year old artist Autumn de Forest
Installation view.


YOUNGSTOWN, OH.- The Butler Institute of American Art, located at 524 Wick Avenue, will present the exhibition, Autumn de Forest: The Tradition Continues from April 10 through June 26, 2016. On Saturday, April 9, 2016 at 1:00 pm, the public and the media are invited to the Butler for an artist demonstration in which adults and children alike can view the young artist’s creative process.

On Sunday, April 10, 2016 a public Meet-the-Artist reception will start at 1:00 pm with a museum member’s “high tea” reception at 2:00 pm.

Butler director, Louis Zona marvels at the quality of work created by this young lady, and comments, “Autumn de Forest is by any measure, a child prodigy. The community is in for a treat”.

Now based in Las Vegas, Autumn de Forest is an artist who happens to be fourteen. She moves freely between abstraction and representation, often mixing elements of both. She experiments with different techniques, such as laying down what she calls an “imperfectly perfect” surface. It may come as a surprise that a number of pieces were painted by a five year old. With no formal art training, Autumn began a self-education process and pursuit of painting at age 5, studying the works of other artists with a dedication and consistency that is beyond that of the usual child. In her explorations and research of the style and technique of well-known artists, she has referenced and paid homage to the works of Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Grant Wood, Robert Indiana and Franz Kline, AND Robert Motherwell. Autumn’s family tree has a number of art world figures including her great, great uncle Hudson River School painter, Lockwood de Forest.

Other members of her family include; her great, great uncle Robert Weeks de Forest, former president of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, cousins, George de Forest Brush, an American painter in the Western School of Art, and Roy de Forest, a pioneer in the new California Abstract Expressionist Movement.
