DIRECTOR’S CHOICE: David Cowan’s Favorites

15 January – 23 April, 2010

An exhibition titled DIRECTOR’S CHOICE will open with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday 15 January 2010 at ACME Fine Art’s 38 Newbury Street gallery. The exhibition will feature a selection of recently acquired paintings, drawings, and sculpture by noted 20th century modern American artists.

The stylistically diverse group of works that comprise the exhibition was assembled by Gallery Director David Cowan from a variety of private collections and estates, with the intent to display the breadth and quality of artwork in the current gallery collection. The exhibition will embrace Surrealism, Early Modernism, Abstract Expressionism, and Figural Abstraction.

In addition, a fine group of Indian Space Paintings by Will Barnet, Steve Wheeler and Peter Busa will be included. Other artists whose work is represented include expressionist painters Jack Tworkov, Stephen Pace, Dorothy Eisner, William Kienbusch, George McNeil and Robert Beauchamp. Rare Surrealist canvases by Federico Castellon and Harold Sterner will also help form the exhibition.

A landscape gem previously exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Hirschhorn Museum that was created by early modern painter Edwin Dickinson in 1938 will round out the diverse group of artworks.

DIRECTOR’S CHOICE will be on view at ACME Fine Art through 23 April 2010.
