This focused exhibition of twelve new watercolors by celebrated conceptual artist Charles Gaines will provide an intimate encounter with the systems and processes through which the artist creates his constantly evolving ‘Numbers and Trees’ series. Trees have been a central motif in Gaines’s distinguished practice since he first began his ‘Walnut Tree Orchard’ series in the 1970s. His methodical examination of their forms continues in this latest series inspired by cottonwood trees he photographed on a recent trip to Arizona. The cottonwood trees Gaines observed during his travels form the basis of the Plexiglas works he will debut in his forthcoming solo exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum in November 2024.

August 5 to September 30, Two Pieces in the Shape of a Pear

Pairing works by Cindy Sherman and Mickalene Thomas, Rita Ackermann and Avery Singer, Mary Heilmann and Martha Tuttle, and Rashid Johnson and Steir herself, this presentation aims to spark fresh associations through unexpected juxtapositions and provide a unique context in which to experience each artist’s work.
