Gerald Peters Gallery, New York, is pleased to announce Logan Maxwell Hagege: Where Land Meets Sky. Comprised of twelve recent paintings by this star of the Western American Art world, it will be Hagege’s first solo exhibition in New York City. This will be an extraordinary opportunity for east-coast audiences to see the paintings of an artist who has a loyal and enthusiastic following and consistently sold-out shows; remains a critical favorite across the world of Western American art; and has received numerous awards since his debut exhibition in 2002.
Represented in museum collections across the country—including the Autry Museum of the American West, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum, and the Briscoe Western Art Museum—Hagege brings the subject matter of the West and the Southwest into the twenty-first century with a lyrical, contemporary style, a masterful technique, and a brilliant palette that captures the beauty of the Southwest. Focusing on contemporary Native American subjects, the southwestern landscape, and classical western icons, Hagege’s paintings are based on a deep understanding of modern design principles. Melded with his appreciation for (and acute knowledge of) the traditions of American realism, his works capture the magic and mystery of his subject matter while pushing the traditions of American realism into a contemporary visual space.
A Los Angeles native, Hagege credits childhood trips to the California desert to visit his grandmother as early inspirations for his art. His continuing connection to the land and the people he paints manifests in the brilliant canvases that will be on view through June 8th.
Logan Maxwell Hagege: Where Land Meets Sky will open with a reception with the artist on Thursday evening, May 10th. Because the last six years of Hagege’s exhibitions have sold out, the gallery will continue to sell a selection of works by lottery on opening night, with the remaining works available on a first-come basis. The exhibition’s full preview will be released on the Gallery’s website on Monday, April 30th, at 12pm, EST.
