Chuck Dugan: New Paintings
February 28 – March 25, 1989


During March the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show a group of new paintings by Chuck Dugan. This will be the artist’s third one-man show at the gallery since 1984.


The new paintings are more open in form than their predecessors while retaining their coloristic intensity and, although largely abstract, they have distinguishable elements that appear throughout the compositions. “LAX,” for example, the largest work in the exhibition at 6 x 10 feet, refers to the Los Angeles airport, and the painting’s broad planes of color and contrasting linear areas reflect its inspiration. Chuck Dugan, who lives and works in Houston, has shown widely throughout the US. He was recently included in the Menil Collection’s inaugural as well as the recent “Texas Triennial” exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston. A survey of his paintings from the last ten years is currently on view in San Antonio.


The Chuck Dugan exhibition will open March 3rd and continue through March 25th. The gallery hours are 10 to 6, Tuesday through Friday and 11 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
