Barry Whistler Gallery presents Blue, Yellow, Red opening reception
Barry Whistler Gallery will present Blue, Yellow, Red, featuring Ellsworth Kelly, Allison V. Smith, Ann Stautberg and John Wilcox.
The exhibition is inspired by a 2007 visit to Berlin’s National Galerie and the overwhelming impact of seeing Barnett Newman’s Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue IV, 1969-1970. This painting is in the museum’s permanent collection and is one of Newman’s seminal and final paintings. His confrontation with these primary colors continued a dialogue in which artists are still engaged today.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 25.
