DAY TRIP: Zimmerli Art Museum
Anthony Velonis, Local Stop, 1939
Serigraphy: The Rise of Screenprinting in America, is on view through February 11, 2018. In the Eisenberg Gallery, at the Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, the show includes works by ADOLF DEHN, HUGO GELLERT, MERVIN JULES, CHARLES KELLER, HUGH MESIBOV, and ANTHONY VELONIS.
As an aside, David and Ruth Eisenberg were New Jersey collectors who were an absolute pleasure to work with; it’s so great to know that pieces we poured over together have gone to the Zimmerli.
It was wonderful to go on a walk-through of the Serigraphy show with curator Nicole Simpson and if there’s still a chance to do that before the show closes, but all means make that most of that opportunity.
Simpson recognized Anthony Velonis as a founder of the medium. While on the New Deal Works Progress Administration (WPA), it was Velonis who ran Serigraphy Workshop and developed methods and systems still used today. Further Simpson wrote that as the technique expanded in use “These prints showcase the diverse approaches of the artists and vividly demonstrate the remarkable flexibility of the medium from mimicking the thick impasto of oil paintings to capturing the flowing lines of drawings to producing flat, crisp surfaces in eye-popping colors.”
In several instances we are offering the exact subjects that are on view in the Zimmerli show – such as the Velonis shown here. This is the link to the Serigraph page on our site:
