Summer Pictures: Curated by Isaac Mizrahi Donna Chung, Jane Freilicher, Maureen Gallace, Maira Kalman, Adrianne Lobel, Lisa Sanditz, and Julia Sherman
The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce a summer group show curated by fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi. The selection of artists is highly personal, even eccentric, and fully represents Mizrahi’s idiosyncratic world view. The artists include Donna Chung, Jane Freilicher, Maureen Gallace, Maira Kalman, Adrianne Lobel, Lisa Sanditz, and Julia Sherman. He has either collected or long admired each of them. Although extremely diverse in terms of age and aesthetics, the group is unified by an original, sophisticated and compelling sense of color and a sensual, joyful quality. A large mural-scale painting by Julia Sherman at the entrance will introduce the show. This rigorous and playful geometric composition by Sherman, a relation of Mizrahi’s who was active painting in the 1960s and ‘70s, demonstrates the kind of art and aesthetic sense which influenced him as a young man.
New to the public are the prismatic landscapes of Adrianne Lobel who is well known for her theater set and production design in collaboration with such notables as Mark Morris. Lisa Sanditz creates bold and fanciful paintings which she shows regularly with Chelsea Gallery CRG. She shares a non- ironic wit and sense of whimsy with the youngest artist in the show, Donna Chung, who shows her composite/collage works with Williamsburg Gallery Klaus von Nichtssagend. Maira Kalman is a gallery artist who is well known for her editorial paintings as well as those made to illustrate her own books. We will present a small selection of gouache paintings on paper from a Gourmet Magazine project on breakfasts.
Maureen Gallace and Jane Freilicher are both master painters of world renown. Freilicher, the ultimate colorist, recently presented a magnificent show on 57th Street at the age of eighty-four. Gallace, with her landscapes inhabited by prototypical architectural forms, shares with Freilicher a keen observervation of nature.
Mizrahi has designed, directed, hosted cabaret and shown us numerous facets of his personality and talents, but this is his curatorial debut!
