Every so often our days as gallery owners are extra exciting. Such as when we become the exclusive representatives of an artist’s estate, which is owned by a museum, and is being sold to benefit the museum’s art acquisition fund. On September 12, 2015 we will hold a gala opening for the exhibition “Easton Pribble (1917-2003) – A Retrospective”. The works in the exhibition represent a lifetime of creative striving by a beloved artist and teacher for more than four decades at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute’s school of art. Upon his death in 2003, the MWPAI received the artist’s estate with instructions to sell the work to benefit the Museum of Art’s Art Acquisition Fund. And now, for the first time ever, that material is being offered for sale…by Caldwell Gallery Hudson.
The images below show the works in the museum’s storage. Almost 200 works available for your viewing and buying pleasure as they sit in the incredible “candy store” which is the extraordinary holdings of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
They will be trucked to our gallery next week, and at 5pm on September 12 on view publicly and for sale for the first time ever.
The catalogues of the exhibition are available for your viewing pleasure HERE. We hope you’ll be as excited about this extraordinary artist and teacher’s work as we are. Please plan a visit to Caldwell Gallery Hudson before October 25, when the exhibition closes.
