Ellsworth Kelly: Slow Curve and Ellsworth Kelly: Fruits & Flowers
Ellsworth Kelly: Slow Curve
Ellsworth Kelly: Fruits & Flowers
June 25 to September 24
Coinciding with the opening of Feibes & Schmitt Gallery, The Hyde will feature two exhibitions devoted to the printed work of Ellsworth Kelly, Slow Curve in the Charles R. Wood Gallery and Fruits & Flowers in the Whitney-Renz Gallery. Kelly is one of the most influential abstract artists in the postwar era. With more than 70 prints, Slow Curve examines this ground-breaking artist's experimentation with curved fields of color, ranging from tight ellipses and shapes with rounded corners to broad arcs and segments. The accompanying show, Fruits & Flowers, reveals the root sources for many of Kelly's geometric shapes, derived from line-drawn images of plants, fruits, and flowers, through a selection of 26 lithographs. Both exhibitions are from the Collections of Jordan Schnitzer and his Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon.
