The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by American artist Richard Artschwager at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Artschwager was an American painter, sculptor and draftsman. Although he has been associated with Pop Art, Conceptual Art, Minimalism and Photorealism, he is best known for forging a path of stylistic independence. Artschwager’s work confounds our expectations of the ordinary through a heterogeneous body of whimsical work that references everyday objects, symbols, people and places, and is often made from unconventional and industrial materials. This exhibition will include approximately forty paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the Hall Collection that span Artschwager’s career from 1964 to 2011. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.
