Press Release

In early October, after 46 years on 57th Street, the George Adams Gallery will reopen in a new space on the first floor of 525 West 26th Street. The gallery's inaugural exhibitions will be new paintings and drawings by James Valerio and a survey of prints and multiples by Lesley Dill.  The Valerio exhibition will be installed in the main gallery and will feature three new paintings as well as four pencil drawings all completed within the past two years.  The Dill exhibition will include works published over the past 15 years by Dieu Donne Papermill, Graphicstudio, Landfall Press, Kruty Editions and Solo Impression, Inc.

The Dill exhibition will highlight her non-traditional approach to printmaking, notably her three-dimensional works such as The Thrill Came Slowly, a multiple published in book format by Kruty Editions, Head, a paper bust published by Dieu Donne, and Copper Poem Hands published by Graphicstudio. Other works include one of her earliest prints published in 1992 by Solo Editions, a selection of small-scale platinum prints from 1997, as well as the recently completed Woman with Hindi Healing Dress, by Landfall Press.
