Virtual Exhibition: Andrew Forge: The Limits of Sight

September 25 @ 8:00 am - December 19 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Organized by scholar and guest curator Karen Wilkin, this exhibition will feature some 20 paintings and works on paper by British artist Andrew Forge (British, 1923-2002). Forge was a painter and art critic, as well as the dean and professor of the Yale University School of Art from 1975-1994. His highly personal abstractions distill his perceptions of place, season, and time of day into subtle orchestrations of pure color. Through this rich presentation, museum visitors – students and faculty as well as the many members of the general public who attend our exhibitions and programs each year – will be introduced to the work of this important contemporary artist. Lenders to the exhibition include numerous private collections, the artist’s widow Ruth Miller, and the collections of the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.

The virtual exhibition will be available on Friday, September 25th at https://www.fairfield.edu/museum/exhibitions/upcoming-exhibitions/andrew-forge-the-limits-of-sight/index.html.

Register on Eventbrite for our Online Opening Lecture: Andrew Forge: The Limits of Sight with exhibition curator Karen Wilkin, on Thursday, September 24th at 4 pm.
