It is fitting that “Quest” solo artist Lenore Simon will celebrate her 90th birthday on International Women’s Day (March 8th) over the course of her exhibition at Sparks Gallery. A survey spanning one wondrous woman’s prolific artistic practice, “Quest” honors a life lived creatively. Simon’s artwork will be on view from December 9, 2017 – March 11, 2018.

From her early education at a high school for the arts, to her collegiate studies at New York’s Cooper Union, and across seven decades of image making, Simon’s work has been characterized by experimentation and a deft use of technique and materials.

It was Simon’s boundless curiosity that led her to learn a new visual language – digital illustration – as an octogenarian, and our exhibition will showcase the artist’s diverse body of work including monoprint, assemblage, serigraph, aquatint, drypoint, ink, mixed media, and more. Featuring Simon’s earliest prints alongside her newest digital creations, “Quest” is an illustration of the artist’s relentless pursuit of her rich creative vision.

Guests who RSVP receive one free drink ticket.
