nyc art scene

a carefully curated calendar & cumulative catalog of new york city's most interesting art exhibitions and events. hand picked by Arthur Seen & Team

Opens Tomorrow, Nov 10, 4-7p: “Viewpoint of the Foundry Man” Thornton DialAndrew Edlin Gallery, 134 Tenth Ave., NYC (bt 18th & 19th St)The exhibition features approximately fifteen of the artist’s renowned mixed media assemblages, created over the last 3 years. Dial, at the age of eighty-four, is in the midst of creating a visual autobiography commemorating the people, places, and events that have shaped his own life. These new works are smaller in scale but not in vision. They take us back to the artist’s boyhood spent in the fields, barns, and homes of rural Emelle, in the western Alabama farmlands. They witness the growth and proliferation of factories, foundries, and mills near Birmingham, which for decades had employed Dial, his brother, and his sons. They take us into the iron and ore mines, but also into Dial’s family life and most intimate thoughts. These paintings are steeped in personal memories of how things once were, from a perspective that only longevity can provide. - thru Dec 23
