Contemporary and modern works spanning a half century will offer the collector and institution an impressive range of monumental and intimate scale works for acquisition. "Collectible" opens with a reception Saturday, March 14 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with the exhibition extending through May 30, 2015.
Notable works in the exhibition will include an installation by the evocative contemporary Spanish artist Jordi Alcaraz whose unique vision has drawn particular recent international attention. Rare paintings by the major Irish artist Patrick Graham will be on view following their recent national museum tour. The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to engage one of Hans Burkhardt's most important works - his provocative 1975 painting, “La Brea Tar Pits” –depicting the Los Angeles County Museum. This monumental painting, with its extraordinary paint handling and composition has been cited as a tour de force in Abstract Expressionism.
