FIRST IMPRESSIONS: New Works and New Acquisitions

475 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

August 6, 2020 - September 26, 2020
Forum Gallery is reopening to the public and to celebrate we are proud to present FIRST IMPRESSIONS: New Works and New Acquisitions, on view from August 6th through September 26, 2020. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: New Works and New Acquisitions is an exhibition of fresh paintings and drawings completed in recent months by our dedicated and talented gallery artists shown together with recently acquired works of historical importance. Most of these works have not been shown due to the pandemic, which caused the cancellation of gallery exhibitions we had planned and art fairs we attend. We are excited to share them with you now. Highlights among the 29 works on view include impressive paintings by Forum Gallery artists William Beckman, Paul Fenniak, Linden Frederick, Alan Magee, Daniel G. Massad, Alyssa Monks, Brian Rutenberg, Maria Tomasula, and Tula Telfair. New drawings and an oil on copper painting by Steven Assael will be included, as well as new large-scale charcoal drawings by Clio Newton, and a watercolor by Rance Jones from his series of works inspired by recent travels to Cuba. Of special interest is a rare 1979 figurative charcoal drawing by William Beckman of his wife Diana and daughter Deidra, a 1978 acrylic work on paper by Robert Cottingham that highlights the wordplay for which the artist is famous, an early 1930s oil on linoleum painting by Jackson Pollock that speaks to the artist's close relationship with his mentor, Thomas Hart Benton, and a playful Saul Steinberg ink and watercolor impression of Manhattan from the 1950s.

Brian Rutenberg: The Pond

475 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

February 27, 2020 - July 31, 2020
New York, NY – From February 27 through April 25, 2020, Forum Gallery, New York, will present The Pond, an exhibition of new abstract landscape paintings by Brian Rutenberg. For this exhibition, his seventh at Forum Gallery, Brian Rutenberg (b. 1965) has created twelve new paintings inspired by the heat, humidity and landscape of his native South Carolina lowcountry. About this latest body of work, Brian Rutenberg writes: "Humidity made me a painter. All of these new paintings are meditations on an imaginary pond as seen through veils of South Carolina Lowcountry heat. The oval has been a primary shape in my work for forty-five years; my first paintings were watercolors of a pond near my childhood home in Myrtle Beach, where I spent a lot of time because I had buck teeth and was horrible at sports. Little did I know, the directness and simplicity of those studies would provide me with a lifetime of imagery. Everything I’m trying to do in my paintings is embodied in the solitary act of viewing a pond. Foreground is close, my sneakers on the muddy bank. Middle ground is the protective gelatin of water. Background is far away. Content is a function of how near or far away things appear from your face. As I walk around to the other side, that which was hidden becomes visible. Likewise, a painting doesn’t reveal itself all at once, but in flecks of partial recognition. I love parades and processionals for this reason. A processional abandons its starting point. Travel eliminates its origins. We are where we go. I paint because I can never see enough places. So, I return to one. My movement becomes a pond, the pond becomes a thought, and the thought returns me to the wealth of humidity." In conjunction with this exhibition, Forum Gallery will release Brian Rutenberg’s new monograph, A Little Long Time. The second monograph of his paintings, this new book documents works completed since the publication of Brian Rutenberg (Radius Books) in 2008. A Little Long Time is a large-scale, hardcover book, with 152 pages, 129 color plates and a lively text by Rutenberg that draws on his life experience and what took him on his career path as a painter. The book will be available for purchase from Forum Gallery during the exhibition. Brian Rutenberg (born 1965, Charleston, SC) lives and works in New York City. He is a Fulbright scholar (1997) and a graduate of The College of Charleston and the School of Visual Arts (NY). Rutenberg’s paintings are collected throughout the United States and Europe and are in the permanent collections of museums including the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, OH; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA; Nassau County Museum of Art, Roslyn, NY; Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC; Hunter Museum of American Art, Chattanooga, TN; Naples Museum of Art, Naples, FL; Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL; Ogden Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; and the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, GA. He has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at institutions across the country including the Cress Gallery of Art at The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, TN (2004); the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC (2009); the Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cotuit, MA (2014); and a retrospective at the Saginaw Art Museum, Saginaw, MI in 2017.

Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Wyeth: Five Decades

475 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

January 16, 2020 - February 22, 2020
New York, NY – From January 16 to February 22, 2020, Forum Gallery, New York, presents an exhibition of works by Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), who set the standard for American figurative art in the second half of the Twentieth Century.  Working in pencil, watercolor, egg tempera and his much-beloved personal medium of drybrush, Wyeth, throughout his life, was a resolute champion of the universal life force of each person he chose to paint, and of the unique, difficult, ever-changing rural American world in which he chose to live.  His art was controversial as it was popular, and he remains one of very few living artists to be celebrated by important single-person exhibitions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (1976) and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (1987). Andrew Wyeth: Five Decades at Forum Gallery features paintings dated from 1940 through 1994, including landscapes that imply personal struggle and portray great beauty; and provocative figurative works, including examples from The Helga Pictures.
