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 aesthetics’ bold and energetic vibe, such as Willem deKooning, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack, Constantino Nivalo & Bob Rauschenberg are portrayed in her recent work fittingly shown at the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum.
In addition to the focus on deKooning, she intends to include works of the women with this circle of artists, some of which were artists themselves, i.e., Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Ruth Klinsmann. Other subjects of the show include dealers such as Leo Castelli and friends of the New York school painters who spent time living and working in Long Island’s East End.
