Arnold Mesches: Weather Patterns and Paint
Nov. 27, 2010 - Jan. 22, 2011
Opening reception Nov. 27, 2010, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Dorsch Gallery will present an exhibition of 36 new paintings by Arnold Mesches, featuring work from two series, Weather Patterns and Paint, from November 27, 2010 through January 29, 2011. The show is presented in conjunction with an exhibition of Mesches' work at the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University. Both exhibitions will be on view during Art Basel Miami Beach from December 2 to 5, 2010.
At age 87, Arnold Mesches' extraordinary new paintings are torn from a full life and an in-depth examination of art history. In both series, Weather Patterns and Paint, the canvases are lush and vigorously painted, displaying the virtuosic, gestural strength and vivid color that has so often been Mesches' signature.
A brochure featuring an interview with Mesches will accompany the exhibition. View a PDF of the brochure
