Exhibition curated by painter Sean Scully opens March 23
Romanticism, an exhibition of paintings by German artists Andrea Hanak and Frank Hutter, curated by Sean Scully, opens in The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center on March 23 and runs through May 5. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The public is invited to a reception on March 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. The artists and curator will be present.
Scully, a painter, has created bodies of work over more than 30 years that are shown widely in museums and galleries throughout the world. His work is included in the collections of major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
For the exhibition in The Riverside Galleries, Scully has chosen two painters who live and work in Munich and are husband and wife. Hutter was a successful graphic designer early in his career. In 1998, he began his studies in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Scully as his professor and mentor. Hanak also studied at the academy under the guidance of Günther Förg, and in 2006, she received the Villa Romana Prize, the oldest art prize in Germany.
For this show, Romanticism, Scully has selected a body of work from each of the artists that calls to mind German Romanticism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A catalog of the works in the exhibition is available and includes an introduction by Scully.
The Riverside Galleries are located at 23 Garrison’s Landing in Garrison. For more information on this and other exhibitions and programs, contact Executive Director Carinda Swann at 845-424-3960 or [email protected].
