ACA Galleries’ current show Paper Through the Ages exhibits the work of Jewish Art Salon’s Founding Member Siona Benjamin, as well as works by Frank Stella, Jasper Johns, John Singer Sargent and others.
February 27- April 2, 2016
Works on paper demand a high level of skill. The very fragility of paper requires a deftness of hand and finesse of media, be it pencil, ink, charcoal, watercolor, or varieties of printmaking. The challenge —and elegance— of works on paper has lured artists for centuries, but only the very best have proved worthy of assuming a place in the history of art. This exhibition showcases some of the artists who have earned a place in that canon.
The show takes us through the twentieth century and into our own time. ACA Galleries’ exhibition PAPER THROUGH THE AGES reveals the power and subtlety, brashness and discipline, and most of all the skill and vision, of some of America’s finest artists.
Including: George Ault, Peggy Bacon, George Bellows, Siona Benjamin, Isabel Bishop, Ilya Bolotowsky, Charles Burchfield, Matthew Daub, Lyonel Feininger, Gertrude Greene, Richard Hambleton, Edgar Jerins, Jasper Johns, Walt Kuhn, Greg Lamarche, Jan Matulka, Thomas Moran, Francis Louis Mora, John Singer Sargent, Joseph Stella, Frank Stella, and Abraham Walkowitz, among others.
