Press Release

New Paintings
Feb 4 - Feb 29, 1992

On Tuesday, February 4th the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will open an exhibition of new paintings by Sandy Winters. This exhibition, her third at the gallery, will feature mid-sized oil paintings in which she explores the line between recognizable imagery and abstraction.

In the current exhibition, Sandy Winters continues to work with natural images, but now the emphasis is on their narrative rather than abstract potential. In these new paintings, titled for example, The Best and Worst of Times and Retribution, the forms are animated, appearing to be in the process of expansion or mutation. In addition, Winters has abandoned the irregular silhouette and raw canvas ground of her earlier work in favor of a painted ground marked by lines incised in the paint.

Sandy Winters was the subject of a five-year survey exhibition at the Art Museum at Florida International University in 1990, where she is a Professor of Painting.  She is currently on sabbatical leave and is living in New York City where until recently she was a Visiting Professor of Painting at Cooper-Union.

The Sandy Winters exhibition will run from Tuesday, February 4 through Saturday, February 29.  There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, February 7 from 5 to 7pm. The gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 to 6 and from 10 to 5:30 Saturdays.
