Dion Johnson
The contemporary take on hard-edge painting by Dion Johnson is vibrant and oscillating, as the show's title promises. More...


A Binary Season
Even as many artists grapple with public issues as crises of political and physical health continue, they also choose to withdraw into the interior space of art for the sake of art. More...


Joan Mitchell
The protean Joan Mitchell as seen in this retrospective mates voluptuary hedonism to feverish agitation in some of the best abstract brushwork of her generation. More...

Jack Chevalier, “Memorial Exhibition”

Tony Fitzpatrick
Tony Fitzpatrick's art and personality go hand-in-hand. So when he says "Jesus of Western Avenue" is his final museum show, believe him. More...


Joel-Peter Witkin, “Journeys of the Soul”
Joel-Peter Witkin’s meticulously crafted tableaux combine the human form, still life objects, and nature to reveal his own fondness for traversing unfamiliar paths. Subjects' physical manifestations prompt complex reactions typically reduced to expressions of fear or loathing. More...
