Professor of Art David Schorr‘s solo exhibition and site-specific installation “FLYING CARPETS” revisits his childhood days spent playing on his grandmother’s Persian rugs. In the paintings, gouache with silverpoint drawing on linen, he recreates the richly-colored world of his young imagination, contrasting familiar toys from the mid 20th century with images that hint at the exotic and expansive world beyond his home. The artist brings the actual subjects of the paintings in a site-specific installation. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog designed by David Schorr, featuring an essay by poet Jonathan Galassi. During the Opening Reception there will be a Gallery Talk by Professor of Art David Schorr at 5pm.
