NO RULES East 9th Street Revisited, 1951-2011
May 19th – June 19th, 2011 Opening reception: Thursday May 19th 2011, from 6-9p, RSVP
Borrowing from the famous quote by Helen Frankenthaler, – “There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen…” – the Dorian Grey Gallery is proud to present our next exhibition: NO RULES, East 9th Street Revisited, 1951-2011. This exhibition celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the ground breaking East Ninth Street Show by featuring many of the pioneering women who participated in that historic group show here on East 9th Street in 1951. Together works by these legendary painters are displayed alongside the next generation of female artists who continue the tradition of going against the “rules” of painting and sculpture. A diverse selection of work is presented by such noted talents such as Elaine deKooning, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, Claire Falkenstein, Judith Pfaff, Erin Hudak, Cecile Brunswick, Rebecca Alston, Shellie Schneider, Rachelle Krieger, and Susan Libby Siegel.
Please RSVP & join us May 19th as we commemorate this exciting exhibition.
