October 26-January 12. Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. For many, Cleve Gray (1918-2004)
is primarily a painter, but drawing, watercolor, and printmaking were an
integral part of his artistic practice. A longtime resident of Warren,
Connecticut, Gray's contemporaries were Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns,
and Jackson Pollock. Yet Gray preferred country life in the company of
close friends and his wife, Francine du Plessix Gray, rather than the
burgeoning New York art scene. This exhibit, curated by Joan Baldwin,
curator of special collections at The Hotchkiss School, and on loan from
the Cleve Gray Foundation, provides a sense of the breadth and depth of
Gray's talent and technique, from his early cubist landscapes, to
delicate ink figure studies, to his abstract watercolors created from
the 1960s to 2000.
