Paintings to be displayed at college

The Daily Star

---- — The Project Space Gallery at SUNY Oneonta will open its 2012-13 season on Tuesday with “Pictures and Books,” an exhibition of paintings—and books derived from them—by David Schorr. The show will include gouache and silverpoint works, including several from the recent “Apothecary (Storehouse)” series shown this summer at the Mary Ryan Gallery in New York City. Books that pair the paintings with poetry also will be displayed.

“Pictures and Books” will run through Oct. 12. Admission to the exhibit is free. Members of the public are invited to a gallery talk by Schorr at 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, with a reception to follow.

Schorr has had solo shows in Chicago, Milan, Rome, Naples, Paris, Athens, Toronto, Montreal and Copenhagen. His work has been reproduced extensively in The New York Times, The New Yorker and in The New Republic, for which he has done more than 300 portraits.

His work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Cleveland Museum of Art, the Fogg Museum at Harvard, New York Public Library, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and the Museum of Modern Art, among others.

The Project Space Gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays when the college is in session. For more information about the gallery or upcoming exhibitions, call Gallery Director Tim Sheesley at 436-3456.
