Wickiser, on view from January 20th – April 3rd, 2016. There will be a Gallery Talk with Walter Wickiser followed by a reception from 6:00 – 8:00 pm on Thursday, February 4th.
Ralph L. Wickiser (1910-1998) gained renown for his ever-evolving style of symbolic art drawn from nature. He was included in numerous solo and group exhibitions during his lifetime including the 1953 Whitney Museum of American Art Annual. Wickiser was Director of Pratt Institute’s Masters of Fine Art program from 1962-75 and held many of New York’s leading artists as friends and colleagues. This retrospective includes fourteen paintings that examine his progression from representational to abstract landscape painting.
