“Past/Present”
February 1 -25, 1989

 

During February the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will present a group exhibition contrasting recent and early works by gallery artists.  The artists featured are Robert Arneson, Luis Cruz Azaceta, William Beckman, Roy De Forest and James Surls.

 

Roy De Forest will be represented by a new multi-color construction which will be seen alongside a 1963 relief sculpture titled “The Young Wordsworth.” Robert Arneson will show a recent narrative sculpture dealing with the death of Jackson Pollack as well as a “house” sculpture of 1970 that is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the Evanston Art Center. Azaceta will show one of his early paintings depicting the sordid side of urban life as well as a recent painting on the theme of the artist in the universe. Beckman will show a new, heavily impastoed portrait painting along with one of his small narrative boxes from 1970, and Surls will show a new sculpture paired with a work from the mid-seventies, period of his work rarely seen on the East Coast.

 

“Past/Present” will open February 1st and continue through February 25th. The Frumkin/Adams Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 to 6 and from 10 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
