2011 season, 20th century painters.

June, W. P. "Pete" Jennerjahn, A student of Josef Albers at Black Mountain College in the late 1940's he took over Albers' color theory class at BMC when Albers left for Yale. We will be showing his early work from the 40's at BMC through 1960.

 

July/August we will exhibit the early work of Robert LaHotan, 1950's and 60's. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Robert L. LaHotan received both his B.A. and M.F.A degrees from Columbia University.  He was a Fullbright Scholar at the University of Frieburg, Germany from 1953-1955. As an artist, LaHotan was deeply influenced by Matisse, Bonnard, Vuillard and his companion Heliker.  His delicate still life’s and interior scenes are evocative of an earlier and perhaps more tranquil time while his landscapes of the Island, and especially the area surrounding his house, are in bold, forceful colors with broad impressionistic strokes. Patricia Bailey, President of the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation, will give an informal talk at the gallery, date and time to be announced.

 

August/September we will show the work of Leo Krikorian, this will be the first time his work has been shown since his death in 2005. Krikorian studied photography with Ansel Adams and after service in WWII enrolled at Black Mountain Collge studying painting with Josef Albers and Ilya Bolotowsky.  Settling in the North Beach area of San Francisco in the early 1950s,he became know as the godfather of the beat generation.
