Christopher Grimes Gallery is celebrating it’s 30th Anniversary with a Works on Paper exhibition commemorating/paying homage to the past, present and future of the gallery.
Opening its doors in 1979, Christopher Grimes Gallery has presented a diverse yet rigorous program of contemporary art, working with national and international artists alike. This pioneering spirit has allowed the gallery to serve as the starting point for the careers of numerous artists and its motivated the promotion of many artists who have moved on to exhibit at major museums and art venues worldwide.
The exhibition includes recent works on paper that pay tribute the gallery’s incredible history. With works by artists from the gallery's past, such as Lisa Yuskavage and the recently passed David Ireland, the gallery looks back to the many artists whose careers it has helped to launch. Including works by artists such as Anton Henning, Katharina Grosse and Waltercio Caldas acknowledges artists who have been with the gallery for many years and whose careers continue to be impacted by the gallery’s efforts. We also are looking towards new goals for the future by incorporating new additions to the gallery’s roster of artists such as Scott Short and Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck.
Artists in the exhibition include Waltercio Caldas, Katharina Grosse, Anton Henning, David Ireland, Max Jansons, Takehito Koganezawa, Joao Louro, Ester Partegas, Juliao Sarmento, Scott Short, Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck and Lisa Yuskavage.
