DESCRIPTION

Art in the Making: A New Adaption celebrates artwork by teachers and students of three New York City art institutions with their counterparts at The George Washington University's Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. First presented by the FreedmanArt gallery in New York City, the exhibition was triggered by the coinciding 50th anniversary of the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture, 140th anniversary of The Art Students League of New York and 125th anniversary of Pratt Institute. In addition to selected pieces from the New York City exhibition, the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery presents pieces from artists associated with the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

Art in the Making: A New Adaptation at the Brady Art Gallery illustrates how the interconnectedness of making art is pertinent to the University's expanded dedication to the arts. The exhibition has pieces that represent the three New York City institutions from the original exhibition at FreedmanArt including work by Lee Bontecou, Helen Frankenthaler, Michael Goldberg, Nancy Graves, Stephen Greene, Hans Hofmann, Bill Jensen, John Marin, Knox Martin, Charles Pollock, Jackson Pollock, Larry Poons, Richard Pousette-Dart, Robert Rauchenberg, William Scharf, and Kit White. Art from the GW Permanent Collection representing the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design includes works by Gene Davis, Georgia Deal, Tom Downing, Ben Ferry, Sam Gilliam, Janis Goodman, Tom Green, Andrew Hudson, Richard Lahey, Jules Olitski, Dennis O'Neil, Ann Purcell, Paul Reed, and images of sculpture by Carol Brown Goldberg and Berthold Schmutzhart.
