Joan Brown: New Paintings and Sculpture
October 20th – November 19th, 1988
Starting on October 21st, the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show a new group of works from Joan Brown’s continuing series, “The Golden Age.” These works include large-scale paintings, relief sculpture, free-standing sculptures with decorated pedestals and architecture panels. The sculptural medium is copper over wood and the painted panels make use of copper as well as enamel.
The dominant influence in the current show is Mayan art, and many of the motifs are derived from the artist’s extensive visits to Mayan ruins and excavations.
Joan Brown’s reputation as a painter was established in the early 1960s. Since that time she has frequently combined aspects of painting and sculpture in installations and wall reliefs. In recent years she has concentrated on large-scale, outdoor sculpture in collaboration with architects and city planners.
The Joan Brown exhibition opens October 21st and continues to November 19th. The gallery hours are 10 to 6, Tuesday through Friday and 11 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
