> DESCRIPTION

DIRECTOR'S CHOICE 2012 was organized and curated by Gallery Director David Cowan who selected works from the estate of first generation abstract expressionist Giorgio Cavallon, from the estates of groundbreaking figurative expressionists Lester Johnson and George McNeil, and from the "white series" group of paintings that were created by former Rhino Horn artist Jay Milder during the 1970s. All of the artwork is fresh and new to the gallery. Most of the pieces have not been exhibited since their gallery debuts during the second half of the twentieth century.

Thematically speaking, this exhibition presents powerful paintings by powerful painters. Without exception, the paintings that comprise this Director's Choice show are bold - in most cases monumental - blockbusters that convey the artists' passion for the medium and for their message. They are abstract, compelling, and evocative, and they veritably demand response from the viewer.
