Peter Malone: Paintings
Exhibition Dates: March 3, 2015 - March 28, 2015
Reception: Thursday, March 5, 6 - 8 pm
With these recent selections from a series of portraits begun in 2011, visitors to the Painting Center are invited to join the artist in exploring the possibilities inherent in a genre as old as painting itself. Straightforward, candid, and intentionally unmannered, each canvas is an attempt to get beyond the search for something new, in order to discover what painting can still illuminate in an era of exceptional cultural complexity. Peter Malone, a current member of Blue Mountain Gallery, New York has participated in group and solo exhibitions at The National Academy of Design, New York; Long Island University, Brooklyn; the Municipal Gallery, Kharkov, Ukraine; the Munson Williams Proctor Art Museum, Utica, NY; the Islip Art Museum, Islip, New York; Gallery Henoch, New York; Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York; the Laguna-Gloria Art Museum, Austin, Texas; the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, New York and the Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester, Vermont. He is the recipient of a 2014 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the author of Back Words: One Painter’s voice in the Conversation (Amazon/CreateSpace, 2012), and he writes reviews and essays for Hyperallergic.com and Artcritical.com.
