Reverie

475 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

February 7, 2019 - March 30, 2019
New York, NY – From February 7 to March 30, 2019, Forum Gallery presents Reverie, an exhibition of landscape paintings by American artist Tula Telfair. In this exhibition, her sixth at Forum, Tula Telfair delves deeply into the depths of memory, recalling her upbringing as the child of scientists in West Africa. Although none of the subjects is literal, the powerful images she remembers inform each painting she creates. In her practice, Tula Telfair has often imagined a place she may have visited, or that may not exist; now, in the fourteen paintings that comprise Reverie, she explores the inner reaches of her dreams and memories, taking us to places she has been or believes in so fully that she is able to portray and take the viewer to the essential, emotional center of every location as she recalls not only the place, but the sense of discovery, of wonder she felt as she found it. The lush warmth of sub-tropical rivers, the majestic power of snow-capped mountains, the peaceful silence of calm waters and the distinctive roar of waterfalls are the essential, natural phenomena on display in Telfair’s paintings. The exceptional detail in her technique belies the imaginary nature of the subject as the medium scale of the works belies the expansive, majestic power of the landscape depicted. Throughout her career, Telfair has conceived all her landscape subjects from vivid imagination; Abrams books published a monograph on Tula Telfair’s work entitled Invented Landscapes with essays by Henry Adams, J. Michael Fay and Michael Roth in 2016. Tula Telfair, a resident of Old Lyme, Connecticut, is a professor of Art at Wesleyan University in Middletown. Since 1978, her work has been exhibited at museums from Pennsylvania to California and galleries from New York to Sri Lanka. Tula Telfair’s paintings may be found in dozens of museum and public collections, including those of the Arkansas Art Center, Epoch Investment Partners, the Federal Reserve Bank, General Electric Corporation, the Hudson River Museum, NBC Universal, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and Omni Hotels. ### Tula Telfair: Reverie opens with a reception for the artist on Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, and will be on view through Saturday, March 30, 2019. Forum Gallery is located at 475 Park Avenue at 57th Street, New York, NY 10022. Please visit forumgallery.com/exhibitions/tula-telfair-reverie to view the entire exhibition online. The exhibition begins on February 7, 2019 and will be on view through March 30, 2019. Forum Gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 5:30pm. A full-color catalogue is available from the gallery. For more information, please contact Kevin Dao, 212-355-4545; kevin@forumgallery.com

Landmarks of 20th Century American Art

475 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022

November 8, 2018 - February 2, 2019
New York, NY – Forum Gallery (est. 1961) will present the exhibition, Landmarks of 20th Century American Art from November 8, 2018 to February 2, 2019. The exhibition will present thirty singularly important works of art dating from 1915 to 1991 and can be described as a journey through the history of Forum Gallery as well as the history of American art of the 20th Century. Each work in the show represents a point of departure for the Artist and for American art. An early, still life painting by Willem de Kooning created between 1928 and 1929 is shown alongside an influential abstraction by Arshile Gorky from the same years. Each of these is a precursor of works, and whole movements, to come. Elie Nadelman’s Two Circus Women, a seminal life-size plaster sculpture from the same time, is now a well-known image, as it served as the model for the monumental, marble sculpture in the promenade of the David H. Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center. Major still life paintings by Preston Dickinson and Marsden Hartley from the 1920s are these Artists’ unique impressions of their subjects, while a rare, abstract painting by Man Ray is more an expression of the act of painting itself. The striking and elegant 1935 terra cotta and silver sculpture, Leaning Figure, by Alexander Archipenko will be shown with a Mother and Child oil on canvas by Arshile Gorky from 1937. The 1940’s yield an iconic Barn Abstraction painting by Charles Sheeler, a rare, major oil painting, Sea and Boat Fantasy, by John Marin and a startlingly original, pivotal oil by the African-American master, Norman Lewis. These works, taken together, exemplify dramatic changes in American art during this time. The 1950’s and 1960’s were turbulent times in American art; although non-objective art is not shown here, as it would require an entire exhibition of its own, the exhibition will show important social realist examples by Philip Evergood and Raphael Soyer; a mystical and mysterious portrait of his muse by the iconoclast, John Graham; an abstracted portrait of critic, Harold Rosenberg, by Elaine de Kooning; an elegant wood-and-found-object sculpture by Louise Nevelson and important paintings by Gregory Gillespie and George Tooker. Completing this look at a century of American art is a “story quilt” by the percipient and courageous Faith Ringgold, an Artist known for paintings characterized by an outspoken activism that is as relevant and necessary today as it ever was. The exhibition, Landmarks of 20th Century American Art, is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with complete documentation and a scholarly text for each work on exhibit. ### Landmarks of 20th Century American Art opens on Thursday, November 8, 2018 and will be on view through Saturday, February 2, 2019. Forum Gallery is located at 475 Park Avenue at 57th Street, New York, NY 10022. Please visit forumgallery.com/exhibitions/current-season to view a selection from the exhibition online. Forum Gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm. A full-color catalogue will be available from the gallery.
