Christopher Grimes Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new seascape paintings by Pia Fries. In this body of work, roiling seas and capsizing ships taken from the engravings of renowned Italian artist of the Baroque period, Stefano della Bella, act as the ground over which Fries applies bristling, vibrant color.

Fries is featured in the new book by Dave Hickey, Twenty Five Women: Essays on Their Art.
