Press Release

Inspired by the recent acquisition of watercolors by George Grosz, this themed show features works made in response to global conflict.  Accompanying two Grosz watercolors is a large drawing and collage by Robert Arneson contemplating the threat of nuclear destrcution;  a large-scale pastel by Luis Cruz Azaceta depicting the horrors of torture;  two etchings by Enrique Chagoya addressing the second Buch administration's militaristic ventures in the Middle East;  and Peter Saul's take on Vietnam, along with a work never before exhibited on the 1969 Biafran War.

'Not a Pretty Picture' will remain on view through February.
