The growth of the Parrish’s collection is a reflection of the Museu m’s increasing role in the community and beyond\, and allows the Museum to develop ever-richer viewer experiences. The Parrish is dedicated to providi ng additional context for the existing strengths\, amplifying discrete them atic bodies of work\, and illuminating the creative process.

\n

The Pa rrish is uniquely placed within one of the most concentrated creative commu nities in the United States. Internationally renowned artists live and work here side-by-side with a burgeoning generation of emerging artists. Each h as an individual story to tell that\, contextualized by the strengths of th e permanent collection\, creates an intellectually and visually compelling narrative.

\n

Over the past five years\, the Parish has been fortunate to acquire a number of paintings\, drawings\, photographs\, and sculptures created over the last thirty years\, each a resonant work of art in its ow n right yet further amplified by its proximity to others. Paintings by Dan Christensen\, Louisa Chase\, Eric Freeman\, Dorothea Rockburne\, and John T orreano speak to abstraction in divergent ways yet each artist’s inventive use of materials and techniques underscores the dialogue among them. Works by Howard Kanovitz\, Rackstraw Downes\, Julia Oschatz\, and Donald Sultan a re representational depictions of landscape that\, taken together\, prompt a reconsideration of the parameters of the genre.

\n

The luminous pres ence of Costantino Nivola’s marble nearby Ross Bleckner’s expressive and ly rical arcs of paint is further evidence that surprising context can offer s urprising insight\, also seen in the as is the unexpected juxtaposition of the warm density of Louise Nevelson’s wall relief and Keith Sonnier’s empha tic sculpture in aluminum and neon.
Sculptors have always pursued dra wing as a means of “thinking on paper” and prime recent acquisitions by Ali ce Aycock\, Mel Kendrick\, and Dennis Oppenheim join works in the permanent collection by John Newman and Joel Shapiro in a revealing display in the a djacent Spine Gallery dedicated to works on paper.

\n

The presentation of the Installation of the Permanent Collection is made possible in part b y The Hearst Foundations\, Barbara J. Slifka\, Henry Luce Foundation\, Barb ara and Mark Zand\, Allison Morrow\, and Gagosian Gallery. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

\n
