Reception Friday, October 5, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Exhibition on view through October 27, 2018
The gallery is honored to exhibit work by Robert Zakanitch, one of American contemporary art history’s most important artists. Zakanitch has been represented by many of the top galleries in Manhattan. This fall he will be traveling through Europe with The Ludwig Collection which includes his paintings. The collection will travel from Aachen, Germany, to Vienna, Austria. Additionally this fall he has shows in Lyon, France, and Los Angeles.
The Charleston exhibition will include illustrations which are featured in his children’s book, Good Dog, published by Random House (out of print). On hand will be his biography: Zakanitch: Robert Rahway, a biography published by Pomegranate, and his book A Garden of Ordinary Miracles: An Alphabet Book, published by Rizzoli/Universe.
The gallery has always been one of Zakanitch’s biggest fans; we have always believed that art should take the viewer to a better place. One cannot come to a Zakanitch exhibition without being happily transformed. Renowned art critic David Pagel calls Zakanitch’s work “a wild collision between freewheeling bohemian abandon and settled-down domestic sociability.”
