Everson Opens Exhibition of Work by Jules Olistki

The Everson Museum of Art presents Jules Olitski: An Inside View, a collection of 40 rarely-exhibited, self-portrait and abstract prints in a variety of media. The exhibition will be on view November 13, 2010 – January 16, 2011.

An Inside Viewfeatures intaglio, silkscreen, lithograph and monotype prints that span the artist’s career of over five decades. Olitski’s works are celebrated for his large-format, lyrical abstractions that shimmer with color. The nuanced colors, loopy shapes and wavy boundaries of his print work are all unique impressions.

“We are proud to showcase a collection of one of America’s pre-eminent painters, Jules Olitski,” said Debora Ryan, Everson Museum of Art senior curator. “Though Olitski is less well-known for his smaller, more intimate prints, each of his works commemorates a joyous celebration of life that also serves as a meditation on mortality.”

An opening night reception is scheduled for November 12, from 5:30- 8:00p.m. to preview Jules Olitski: An Inside View, as well as the Haudenosaunee: Elements andYui Kugimiya: Live Paintings exhibitions. The event is free for Everson Museum members and $10 for non-members at the door. Refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres will be available before previewing the exhibitions.

The exhibition was organized by Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro, Vt., in collaboration with Knoedler and Company, New York, N.Y. Major funding for An Inside View is provided by M&T Bank and media sponsorship provided by The Post-Standard.
