Acquavella Galleries opened its doors to Wayne Thiebaud: Summer Days, which will be on view from April 26th through June 14th in New York. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Wayne Thiebaud Foundation, presents works from multiple decades of the artist’s career and tracks his sustained interest in recurring subject matter, here offering a nostalgic look at American life passing through the heat of summer. In Summer Days the artist’s many paintings play with both present and past, tasking the viewer to relax amongst scenes of warmth, indulgence, and distant serenity. Rendered in candy-colored impasto, the exhibition includes examples of Thiebaud’s paintings of sweets, hot dogs, bathing suits, and whirling beach scenes, among other subjects.

Here are a few photo’s from an exhibition where the ice cream in these gorgeous paintings almost looks like they’re melting.
