Press Release

During March and April, George Adams Gallery will exhibit drawings and prints from 1960 to 1975 by PETER SAUL. The exhibition, which surveys Saul's artistic progression from Pop Art to politics, fills the gallery's two exhibition spaces with 20 works, several of which have never been shown before.

Born in San Francisco in 1934, Saul attended the California School of Fine Arts before earning a degree from the School of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Over the next nine years, he gained recognition as a Pop artist while living abroad in Holland, France and Italy. Upon his return to the United States and to the Bay Area in 1965 he became increasingly radical and focused on some of the most scorching issues of the Vietnam Era.

The exhibition begins chronologically with two drawings from 1960. One is a rare "Icebox" drawing, possibly one of only two Saul made to complement his series of paintings of the same subject. The exhibition continues with "Superman" from 1961, "Cash" and "Marfak," from 1965, several drawings from his "Mill Valley" series of 1966-67, and "Gud Art," 1970, an outrageous day-glo rendering of Bobby Kennedy entwined with Pat Nixon.

In the Drawing Gallery is a complete set of Saul's political prints, nine in all.  "White Sex," from 1966, is a small black and white lithograph and his first on the theme of the Vietnam War. Also included are "Commie Girl," and "GI on the Cross," both from 1967, "Angela Davis" from 1972 and the infamous "Veetnam Amboosh" of 1975.

"Peter Saul: Prints and Drawings, 1960 - 1975,"will open on February 26th and continue through April 11th.
