Opening for “Cornelia Foss: New Paintings” at Peter Marcelle Project
June 6, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us for an exhibition of new paintings by Cornelia Foss. Foss, a painterly realist, has been painting for over 50 years, as is evident by her sure hand and elegant use of color.
Long considered a quintessential Hamptons artist, Foss is renowned for her fresh and personal vision. Her work interplays intense emotion within the formal constraints of design and painting.
Featured in numerous solo and group shows both nationally and internationally, her work is included in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; Guild Hall, East Hampton, NY; the Brooklyn Museum, NY; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; and the Huntington Museum, Long Island, NY, among many other public and private collections. In 2009, Foss was elected as a member of the National Academy of the Arts. 2013 marked the publication of her book Cornelia Foss, Ten Years of Paintings and Drawings 2003 – 2013, which was accompanied by a solo show at Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY.
Fall 2015 heralds the publication of a new book, Cornelia Foss: A Retrospective (Rizzoli) and a solo exhibition at East Hampton’s Guild Hall
