Monday, May 26 – Monday, October 13

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 28 / 4-6pm FREE

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. In the last two years, 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. Museum Hours through June 28 and after Labor Day: Fri & Sat 11am-5pm; Sun noon-5pm; Mon 11am-5pm. June 29-Labor Day, open Mon., Wed., Thurs., Fri. & Sat. 11am-5pm (Closed Tues.); Sun noon-5pm.

Robert Motherwell: The East Hampton Years, 1944-1952

Saturday August 9 – Monday October 13

Opening Reception: Saturday August 9 / 4-6pm

$7 Suggested Admission / FREE to Members

Guest Curator: Phyllis Tuchman, longtime art critic

When Robert Motherwell was in his seventies and looking back at the period when he lived in East Hampton, he recalled, “I did my best work there.” In this spirit, we will call attention to Motherwell’s early work and explore the contributions that Motherwell made to the Abstract Expressionist movement in the context of our East End artist’s community. While in East Hampton, Motherwell lived and worked in a house and studio designed by Pierre Chareau, the inimitable French architect. A show devoted to the paintings Motherwell made during those remarkable years has never been mounted. Focusing on sixteen important works from major museums and three private collections, Robert Motherwell: The East Hampton Years, 1944-1952 will surprise even those who think they know this pioneering American abstractionist’s art well.

 

$7 Suggested Admission. Museum Hours through Labor Day: Mon., Wed., Thurs., Fri. & Sat. 11am-5pm (Closed Tues.); Sun noon-5pm. After Labor Day: Fri & Sat 11am-5pm; Sun noon-5pm; Mon 11am-5pm.
