Arlene Slavin Intersections

Friday, May 23 – Monday, October 13

New York-based artist Arlene Slavin has created more than 30 public sculptures. She received her BFA at Cooper Union and MFA at Pratt institute and has exhibited with Alexander Milliken, Brooke Alexander, and the Fischbach Galleries. She’s had 21 solo exhibitions and 80 group shows, including the Whitney Biennial in 1976. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum, Chase Manhattan Bank, and Prudential Life Insurance. Guild Hall will exhibit a new series of sculptures and paintings referencing work Slavin exhibited in the mid-1970s. Like her early work, these sculptures and paintings are pencil, diagonal, grid-based with layers of lush, translucent stained colors. In many paintings, the X provides a recognizable entrance into an abstract world as the viewer’s eye scans and jumps from color to color slowly entering into the depth of the painting.

 

$7 Suggested Admission. Open 7 days through Labor Day: Mon-Sat 11am-5pm; Sun noon-5pm. Museum hours after Labor Day: Mon, Fri, & Sat 11am-5pm; Sun noon-5pm.
