|Nov 12 - Dec 31, 1987|
On November 12th, the Frumkin Gallery will open an exhibition of paintings by James Conboy in the Drawing Gallery. This exhibition, the artist's first one-man show at the Frumkin Gallery, will feature 8 works, all small in scale. The exhibition will continue through the month of December.
James Conboy's paintings are abstract works constructed from a complex range of forms and colors inspired by the rhythms and textures o the city. These paintings are landscapes in the sense that they refer to urban landmarks, to light and shade and to the overlapping forms created by the dense urban grid. But these are not paintings of specific places; rather they are distillations from memory that capture the feel of a place in a spirit that recalls the Cubists and Futurists.
The exhibition of paintings by James Conboy will open Thursday, November 12 and run through Thursday, December 31. The Frumkin Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 to 6 and from 10:30 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
