"de Kooning & Friends" Mary Montes Solo Exhibition Closing Reception_Hamptons
Curated by the artist, Mary Montes’ solo exhibition titled “deKooning and Friends” is a passionate display of her abstract expressionistic figures of the New York School during the mid-late 20th century. An ever present inspiration to many of today’s contemporary painters, these icons of the New York art scene that were instrumental in securing the American aesthetic’s bold and energetic vibe, such as Willem deKooning, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack are portrayed in her recent. Her work has been exhibited in the Lowe Art Museum, College of Arts and Science at Miami University, Andy Gato Galleries, Museum of Contempory Art (North Miami), and private art shows in Miami Beach as well as Spectrum Art Fair during Art Basel week. Montes is currently represented by Quogue Gallery in Quogue, NY, as well as Micheal Findlay Gallery and will participate in a group show curated by Peter Marcelle in June 2017.
Mary Montes’ abstract expressionistic figures of notables from the art world are fittingly appropriate for the historic venue of the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum. In addition to the focus on deKooning, she intends to include works of the women within this circle of artists, some of which were artists themselves, i.e., Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Ruth Klinsmann many of which who’ve also have spent time living and working in Long Island’s East End.
