True Colors: Wolf Kahn & Fay Lansner

True Colors: Wolf Kahn & Fay Lansner

October 12 - November 30
Reception - Saturday, October 27, 5 - 7 PM

Noted Gallery, in conjunction with the Quogue Gallery, is beyond excited to announce the culminating show of the 2018 Summer/Fall Season at 64 Jobs Lane, Southampton, NY.

Starting October 12th through November 30th, the gallery will show 16 original Wolf Kahn pastels on paper, dating from the 1950s to present day.
 
The pieces featured are from the private collection of art enthusiast and a longtime acquaintance of the artist. The work exhibits the collector and friend's, true appreciation for Kahn’s deft feel for color at its most vibrant, and often, unexpected. As a result, the show represents a capsule collection of the rarest Kahn’s, spanning the past half-of-a-century. The collection of these unique pastels speaks visual volumes as to why the artist, Wolf Kahn, is hailed as “America’s Greatest Colorist.”

Like Kahn, Fay Lansner also studied with Hans Hoffman, whom Kahn has referenced as “one of the greatest art teachers of his generation.” Lansner studied with Hoffman in 1948 in a popular drawing class in Provincetown, MA. The following year, Lansner continued her evolvement in New York City, alongside Kahn, Larry Rivers and Jan Muller.
