One event on May 2, 2019 at 6:00 pm
The Walter Wickiser Gallery is proud to announce an exhibit of Ralph Wickiser’s The Reflected Stream, The Early Years 1975 – 1978, from April 11th to May 21st, 2019.
“This show, “The Reflected Stream: The Early Years 1975-1978” offers a beguiling look at landscape abstractionist Ralph Wickiser (1910-98). Wickiser’s near-obsessive focus on reflected patterns of images in the brook near his Woodstock, New York, home and studio resulted in paintings that pulse with concentrated energy. At a distance, these idyllic scenes push and pull the eye between illusion and abstraction.*
Since the 1930s, Wickiser’s works have been shown in galleries, universities, and museums throughout the country- the Metropolitan Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum and the Oakland Museum, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Dayton Museum, the Cincinnati Museum, and the Dallas Museum to name a few. A book of Wickiser’s works published in conjunction with the show is available.
