Greetings 2021

~~~~~~~~~~~
It was Jackson and Lee’s practice to send New Year’s cards, so we follow their lead and send you warm wishes for a happy, healthful, and prosperous 2021!

Our image is the “wolf moon” on the night of January 10, 2020, casting an ethereal glow on the dynamic clouds–a dramatic start to a difficult and challenging year! But thanks to our many supporters and the resourcefulness of our staff we had a successful, if curtailed, season. We introduced an amazing virtual reality tour of the studio, and served wider audiences with Zoom programming.

We look forward to welcoming you back in person the spring!

Shimon Attie Investiture

January 6 at 7 p.m.
—–
You are cordially invited to attend the formal investiture of Shimon Attie as the inaugural Charles C. Bergman Visiting Professor of Studio Art at Stony Brook University. The virtual ceremony, hosted by President Maurie McInnis, will be held on January 6 at 7 p.m.
—–
Please RSVP here by January 4 to receive the login link.
~~~~~~~~~~~
The ceremony also acknowledges the generosity of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, which granted Attie a Lee Krasner Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013. The foundation’s contribution to Stony Brook was instrumental in establishing this professorship, which honors the memory of the foundation’s longtime Chairman and CEO, Charles C. Bergman, and his lifelong commitment to the arts.

Our Pollock is spending the winter in Florida

~~~~~~~~~~~
Our Pollock painting, known as Composition with Red Arc and Horses, ca. 1938, is on loan to The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida, where the exhibition Charles and Jackson Pollock will be on view from January 30 through March 28.
—–
The exhibition brings together works by Charles (1902-1988), the eldest of the five Pollock brothers, and Jackson (1912-1956), the youngest. Both were students of Thomas Hart Benton and admirers of the Mexican muralists, and each evolved away from representational imagery to create his own abstract visual language.

In Memoriam: Barbara Rose

—–
The distinguished art critic, filmmaker, and curator Barbara Rose died on Christmas Day at the age of 84. A major figure in the art world for more than fifty years, she will be deeply missed by those of us who are fortunate to have known and worked with her.
~~~~~~~~~~~
A longtime champion of Lee Krasner’s work, Barbara produced the 1978 film, “Lee Krasner: The Long View,” which she screened and discussed for our 2018 Annual Marburger Lecture. She organized “Krasner/Pollock: A Working Relationship” at Guild Hall Museum in 1981 and Krasner’s 1983-84 traveling retrospective exhibition, which ended its national tour at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Most recently, she served as an advisor and contributor to the late Ruth Appelhof’s memoir, Lee and Me: An Intimate Portrait of Lee Krasner, published in June 2020.
