We are pleased to announce the exhibition, Vera List & The Posters of Lincoln Center at Poster House. On view thru October 3, 2021.
Poster House’s second mini-exhibition focuses on the contribution made by Vera List to the creation of a poster program advertising the new Lincoln Center complex in 1962.
Inspired by artist-designed posters she had seen in Paris, she earmarked $200,000 as seed money for what would become the List Art Poster Program (later known as the Vera List Art Project), featuring some of the most notable names in contemporary art, from Andy Warhol to Roy Lichtenstein, Ben Shahn to Robert Indiana. Each poster advertises a new building or event at the venue, chronicling how a now-famous New York institution was introduced to the public through posters.
Poster House is located at: 119 W. 23rd Street New York, NY 10011
We are excited to share a recent Florida Weekly article about our favorite sculptor, Jane Manus.
Excerpt from ARTNews: "In addition to visions arising from his trip to Mexico, Dzama was at work on a body of drawings related to a commission from the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Arts & Design program for art in and around the city’s subways. Though constrained in terms of what he could say about a project whose future in the coming months might change, he talked about it in the context of a stage work he collaborated on (designs for costumes and sets) with choreographer Justin Peck and composer Bryce Dessner for the New York City Ballet. Premiering in 2016, The Most Incredible Thing served as an update to a dark fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen written more than 140 years ago. Since then, the project has maintained a hold on Dzama’s imagination.
“These are opera or ballet scenes, always with a moon or sun or stars,” he said of drawings that were in the works in April. “I’ve been kind of going in that direction with my art: heavy on the ballet and alchemy and solar systems.” While working with Peck, Dzama conceived a possible follow-up project inspired in part by a costume he made in mind of Loie Fuller, an important early figure in the history of modern dance known to stage spectacles with flowing fabrics and elaborate lighting designs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “I was considering writing a children’s story about these kids who come into a garden and get changed into moths by a wizard. It had something to do with the moon as well,” Dzama said. “We never ended up doing it, but it all ended up in these drawings.”

DON NICE (1932 - 2019)
Painter and Pop Artist Dies at 86
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the New York artist Don Nice. Nice was recognized for his Hudson River scenes, oversized still life images and non-traditional shaped canvases. In 1988, he created a special limited edition print of colorful musical instruments for Lincoln Center titled, Festival Predella. We appreciate his artistic contribution to our community and will miss him greatly.
Facts and Fictions, Curated by Claire Gilman
Terry Winters has said that, as a young man mesmerized by Minimalism, he was led by the desire to draw “away from that blankness and toward developing an imagery that could play a role in my work.” This effort precipitated the atmospheric paintings inspired by scientific illustrations of organic specimens for which he first became known in the early 1980s. The seventy—eight works in this retrospective will follow Winters’s development from that time through the more fully abstract approach that has occupied him since the ’90s, with dense weaves of swirling, crisscrossing lines and scattered blips, and will include more recent drawings that reclaim shapes reminiscent of his earliest phase within the more complex spatial context he’s since developed—what he’s called a “vitalized geometry.”
