New Paintings

Hours of Operation: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 6 pm

On Thursday March 29th, 2007 the Betty Cuningham Gallery will open its second exhibition of recent paintings by Philip Pearlstein.  The exhibition will include nine paintings completed by Pearlstein within the last three years. There will also be a selection of watercolors.

After a brief sojourn with abstract expressionism in the 1950’s, Pearlstein turned away from his contemporaries and pursued a personal vision which sent him along a very different path. Selecting the nude primarily as his vehicle to explore visual tensions, he became the master of realism for his generation.
