On Saturday, May 5, 2018, Friends of RxArt were invited to a special walkthrough of Dan Colen’s inaugural exhibition at Lévy Gorvy Gallery. Friends of RxArt had a chance to take a private tour of the show lead by the artist, and learn about the inspiration behind his work and how he created it. The exhibition celebrated his recently announced representation by the gallery and an evolution of his painterly practice. Dan Colen presented three recent series – Purgatory, Mother, and Mail Order – that focused on technical innovation in pursuit of ambience and emotional depth.

Friends of RxArt members attend studio visits, annual events, including the RxArt PARTY and more throughout the year. To join, contact 212-260-8797 or Megan_Skidmore@rxart.net.
