Exhibition: Jane Peterson: Rhythmic Arrangements
On exhibition May 20, 2017 - July 1, 2017
Please join us for Rhythmic Arrangements, an exhibition featuring over a dozen works by the adventurous and independent Jane Peterson (1876-1965), an artist whose style - while often described as a blend of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, and Fauvism - truly defies classification. The core group of paintings in this exhibition has resided in a private collection for the past fifty years. Peterson's extraordinary talent carried her to the center of New York art circles, to Europe and exotic locales in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, and Turkey, and finally to the walls of prestigious museums throughout the country. Documenting one of her excursions, Peterson wrote, "Isn't it strange - here I am alone, going to the most fanatical town in Turkey, can't speak a word of the language, on a cheap boat to an unknown port, and I am not the least bit afraid!" Fearless in both her personality and her work, Peterson pursued her chosen profession with zeal to become one of the most respected painters of her generation. Rhythmic Arrangements will be viewable online and in the gallery May 20 - July 1, 2017.
