Cleve Gray in Connecticut Modern: Art, Design, and the Avant-Garde, 1930–1960 at the Bruce Museum
For three decades, Connecticut was a true international center of innovation in the arts. Although turn-of-the-century landscape painting has been justly celebrated at the Bruce and elsewhere, the significance of the state’s place in the history of 20th century modernism has gone largely unnoticed. September 23, 2023 to January 7, 2024.
Richard Anuszkiewicz: Knots and Concatenations, 1986-2020
The “Knots” series are among the last paintings that Richard Anuszkiewicz (1930-2020) worked on in his studio at the time of his death. This group of five, presented here for the first time, are perfect examples of illusionism-shattering flatness. As John Dorfman points out in the forthcoming catalogue, the third dimension is present, but in an ambiguous, even paradoxical way. The squares and rectangles are made up of strips that overlap, going over and under each other. Colors seem to oscillate back and forth, each seeming to be in front for a moment and then recede to allow the other to come forward.

Remembering Maureen Howard, 1930 - 2022
In well-reviewed works like “Natural History” and “A Lover’s Almanac,” she was intent, a fellow writer said, on “making the novel do and hold more.”
Maureen Howard, who first drew wide attention in 1965 with her novel “Bridgeport Bus,” which came to be regarded as a precursor to second-wave feminism, and went on to write ambitious, well-regarded books for 45 more years, died on Sunday in Manhattan. She was 91.

The Brooklyn Rail - Sacred Spaces: Art and Spirituality review by Mary Ann Caws
Loretta Howard and her gallery have planned this amazing and ongoing celebration of the way in which art can enhance an entire life of religious ritual. This immediate burgeoning of new work, relating, in the case of the great Greek artist Antonakos, to Byzantium and the sacred gold background, responds to just what we might have been suffering lately, in view of the crises in the world beyond the building whose art we are celebrating.
David Row: The Shape of Things at CMCA, Rockland, Maine
The Shape of Things is the first major exhibition of painter and master printmaker David Row’s work in his home state. Born in Portland, in 1949, Row is a multi-generational Mainer. His father’s family settled in Perry, a small town in Washington County near the Canadian border, in the early 19th century. Row visited the family homestead many times as a child and thought of it “as the wildest place I’d ever seen.”
In his teen years, Row’s family began summering on Cushing Island in Casco Bay, first in a series of rented cottages, then purchasing a house in 1968. Accessible only by private boat and with no vehicular traffic allowed, Cushing is a world apart. In the early 1990s, Row and his wife Kathleen built their own house and studio on the island. “The studio became a major part of my working life from the summer of 1994 to the present,” Row says, “I live and work there now for five months each year.”
