  • - Eleven never-before-seen examples of Pat Lipsky’s early work—pictures acclaimed in the New York Times, Arts, and collected by the Hirshhorn and Whitney Museums, among others—are proudly presented by GP Contemporary Gallery in the new exhibition Stain Paintings 1968—1975.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by a 30 page catalog with an essay by the celebrated writer & art critic Carter Ratcliff. These canvases track Lipsky’s progress across her first decade in New York City; the years in which this contemporary painter was coming of age. A reception with the artist will be held on April 6, 2017 from 6:00–8:00 PM. The exhibition will then be on view through Saturday, May 6, the gallery’s first solo showing of Lipsky’s work. GP Contemporary Gallery, a celebrated branch of Gerald Peters Gallery, is located at 24 East 78th Street, New York, NY, and gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10am - 5pm, Saturday 12-5pm. click for details

    The eleven works were discovered by GP Contemporary Managing Director Gavin Spanierman, after being stored away for nearly half a century. These masterworks will be unveiled at the exhibition’s opening—pieces that range from spontaneous flowing bands of color to a deliberate grid organized by striking hues—and represent a thrilling opportunity to experience a painter at the start of a celebrated career, and to revisit the art world of New York in the nineteen-seventies.

    “Judgments made in these paintings still resonate today,” said Spanierman. “Visitors will have the opportunity to see beautiful artwork charged with sophistication and meaningful energy. These visual expressions are dynamic, balanced and timeless.” The images reflect the excitement of the period—a moment when American art and American life was being challenged and enriched. That dynamism is captured and extended in Lipsky’s bold work.

    Through the exhibition we witness an exciting transformation in the painter’s approach. The earliest pieces present striking and well-defined ribbons of color, beautifully stacked in matching and undulating forms. As Lipsky’s style evolves the character of her imagery changes and tightens, becoming a loose representation of its former self—subtler and more imperceptible—until her mature style comes into view.

    Working in her prevailing mode of the time—gestural abstraction—Lipsky applies sponged acrylic paint to raw canvas, creating a striking watercolor effect, often amplified by a stark background. We see influences of Rothko, Matisse and Pollock, the paint frequently beginning as splatter. The hand-drawn grid lines in the final piece, Sixth Avenue, enclose the viewer while reflecting the streets of Manhattan, arguably the most famous grid in the world. Often associated with lyrical abstraction, color field, and later geometric abstraction, Lipsky’s work demands to be contemplated. This is a chance to relive the start of a career, with a female artist whose work has become well known among museum-goers and collectors.

    Pat Lipsky lives and works in New York. Raised in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, her interest in painting were stimulated as a young girl, visiting museums and studying painting at the Brooklyn Museum with Moses Soyer, aesthetics with Jewish Museum Director Alan Solomon at Cornell University, later with the theoretician and sculptor Tony Smith at Hunter. Lipsky began exhibiting her work as a 28 year-old at the André Emmerich Gallery during the late 1960s. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally for five decades. Her work is included in countless private collections and 26 museum collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Walker Art Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is a winner of the prestigious Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Grant, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and is a recipient of awards from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, among others.

    - Author Talk: Libertarians on the Prairie

    Saturday, April 29
    11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
    Farioly Program Room


    Libertarians on the Prairie: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rose Wilder Lane, and the Making of the Little House Books - author talk with Christine Woodside

    In this groundbreaking work of literary detection, author Christine Woodside reveals for the first time the full extent of the collaboration between Laura and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Rose hated farming and fled the family home as an adolescent, eventually becoming a nationally prominent magazine writer, successful novelist, biographer of Herbert Hoover, and Danbury resident. Rose Wilder Lane even wrote some Little House drafts from her home on King Street in Danbury!

    Drawing on original manuscripts and letters, Woodside shows how Rose reshaped her mother's story into a series of heroic tales that rebutted the policies of the New Deal.

    As Seen in: THE NEW YORK TIMES, POLITICO, THE HISTORY CHANNEL and more!

    Books Will Be Available to Purchase.

    Christine Woodside is a writer and the editor of the journal Appalachia, the author of Energy Independence and editor of Living on an Acre and No Limits but the Sky. She has nourished a fascination with the Little House books since she was a girl. As a teenager, she applied for a summer job at the Laura Ingalls Wilder farmhouse in Mansfield, Missouri—but, residing in New Jersey, lived too far away. She lives in Deep River, Connecticut, with her husband.

These canvases track Lipsky’s progress across her first decade in New York City; the years in which this contemporary painter was coming of age. A reception with the artist will be held on April 6, 2017 from 6:00–8:00 PM. The exhibition will then be on view through Saturday, May 6, the gallery’s first solo showing of Lipsky’s work. GP Contemporary Gallery, a celebrated branch of Gerald Peters Gallery, is located at 24 East 78th Street, New York, NY, and gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10am - 5pm, Saturday 12-5pm. click for details

    The eleven works were discovered by GP Contemporary Managing Director Gavin Spanierman, after being stored away for nearly half a century. These masterworks will be unveiled at the exhibition’s opening—pieces that range from spontaneous flowing bands of color to a deliberate grid organized by striking hues—and represent a thrilling opportunity to experience a painter at the start of a celebrated career, and to revisit the art world of New York in the nineteen-seventies.

    “Judgments made in these paintings still resonate today,” said Spanierman. “Visitors will have the opportunity to see beautiful artwork charged with sophistication and meaningful energy. These visual expressions are dynamic, balanced and timeless.” The images reflect the excitement of the period—a moment when American art and American life was being challenged and enriched. That dynamism is captured and extended in Lipsky’s bold work.

    Through the exhibition we witness an exciting transformation in the painter’s approach. The earliest pieces present striking and well-defined ribbons of color, beautifully stacked in matching and undulating forms. As Lipsky’s style evolves the character of her imagery changes and tightens, becoming a loose representation of its former self—subtler and more imperceptible—until her mature style comes into view.

    Working in her prevailing mode of the time—gestural abstraction—Lipsky applies sponged acrylic paint to raw canvas, creating a striking watercolor effect, often amplified by a stark background. We see influences of Rothko, Matisse and Pollock, the paint frequently beginning as splatter. The hand-drawn grid lines in the final piece, Sixth Avenue, enclose the viewer while reflecting the streets of Manhattan, arguably the most famous grid in the world. Often associated with lyrical abstraction, color field, and later geometric abstraction, Lipsky’s work demands to be contemplated. This is a chance to relive the start of a career, with a female artist whose work has become well known among museum-goers and collectors.

    Pat Lipsky lives and works in New York. Raised in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, her interest in painting were stimulated as a young girl, visiting museums and studying painting at the Brooklyn Museum with Moses Soyer, aesthetics with Jewish Museum Director Alan Solomon at Cornell University, later with the theoretician and sculptor Tony Smith at Hunter. Lipsky began exhibiting her work as a 28 year-old at the André Emmerich Gallery during the late 1960s. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally for five decades. Her work is included in countless private collections and 26 museum collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Walker Art Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is a winner of the prestigious Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Grant, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and is a recipient of awards from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, among others.

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
