Now on view at Senior & Shopmaker Gallery, in New York, is a selection of works on paper made by Brice Marden between 1973 and 2001. The show traces the artist’s stylistic development from Tiles (1979), made with a twig dipped in sugar solution, to Cold Mountain: Zen Study 1 (1991), the culmination of the artist’s experimentation with a looser, more calligraphic style following a trip to Asia in the mid-1980s.

Jacques Jarrige, Marden was a student of the meandering line, and the braided squiggles of Cold Mountain: Zen Study 1 have the appearance of light refracted on the bottom of a pool. This new exhibition makes the case that these linear tapestries are rooted in the tradition of Abstract Expressionism.

Marden (b. 1938) was the subject of a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2006. He lives and works in Manhattan.

On the centennial of the artist’s birth, the Farnsworth Art Museum, in Rockland, Maine, has organized a series of five shows dedicated to Andrew Wyeth. Over a nine-month period, the institution will present an assortment of drawings, watercolors and temperas, including Her Room (1963), which shows a conch shell on a six-board chest as light rakes across an open door. As with Wyeth’s signature work, Christina’s World (1948), this painting is a composite of tenderness and melancholy, invoking the hardscrabble villages of Maine, a subject artist Marsden Hartley also knew well.

The Farnsworth Art Museum was a champion of Wyeth even before it opened its doors, buying watercolors from the young artist following a show at Macbeth Gallery, in New York, in 1944. The museum opened four years later and, in 1951, staged Wyeth’s first solo museum retrospective in conjunction with the Currier Gallery of Art, a precursor of the Currier Museum of Art, in Manchester, N.H.

Drawing from Collection: 40 Years at Laumeier

Laumeier Sculpture Park

April 1-July 16, 2017

12580 Rott Road, St. Louis, MO 63127

For more information, call 314.615.5278 or visit

To mark the 40th anniversary of the institution, Laumeier Sculpture Park will present a selection of preparatory drawings, prints, works on paper, collages and photographs related to sculptural commissions throughout its history. As with “
Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture,” which opened at the Kimbell Art Museum, in Forth Worth, Texas, earlier this month, this exhibition is concerned with the creative process, rather than the finished article. Among the artists featured are heavyweights of contemporary sculpture like Vito Acconci, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Andy Goldsworthy, and Donald Judd.

“[This exhibition] focuses on the unique way these artists approach drawing as a method used to brainstorm, engineer, translate and complement their three-dimensional creations,” says Dana Turkovic, curator of exhibitions at Laumeier Sculpture Park. “There is an immediacy in the artist’s thought process that these works on paper communicate as they explore the gap between ideas and reality.”

Following a $50 million redesign, the Yorktown Victory Center has reopened as the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, a state-of-the-art facility that will explore the birth of the nation through a collection of Revolution-era art and artifacts, outdoor living-history areas, an introductory film, interactive displays, and an experiential theater that engages all the senses. (The latter is a semicircular screen with vibrating seats, wind, puffs of smoke and the smells of gunpowder, seawater, and coffee.)

The Grand Opening, which continues through April 4, is only the first of many happenings to mark the occasion: “AfterWARd” (June 10-November 27, 2017) will address Alexander Hamilton’s connection to Yorktown, and “Pocahontas Imagined” (July 15, 2017-January 28, 2018) will interrogate the exploitation of the Native American notable in popular culture.

Beyond its innovative programming, the museum has sizable holdings of Chippendale furniture, tablewares, and portraiture. It recently acquired Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (William Hoare, ca. 1730s) with a $150,000 grant from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation, of Richmond, Va.
