Richard Haas Artist Talk & Reception

Date/Time

Sep 23, 2018
03:00 PM until 05:00 PM

Description

Richard Haas’s fascination with the graceful, austere curves and swooping lines of classical architecture, particularly the skylines of New York City, has resulted in a wealth of masterful artwork, from trompe l'oeil murals 20 stories tall to soft, yet photorealistic paintings. However, long before the birth of his love for architecture, the young Haas harbored a passion for German and Abstract Expressionism, expressed in a collection of prints interestingly disparate from his later works of architectural art.

 

On Sunday, September 23, 3:00 – 5:00 pm, Museum members and visitors will have the opportunity to hear Haas speak about his career and the progression of his work from abstract prints to the architectural paintings and murals that define his reputation today. A celebratory wine and cheese reception with the artist will follow the talk. This special event is free for Bruce Museum members and students (with valid ID); $15 for non-members. Advance registration at brucemuseum.org is required.

 

A selection of Haas’s formative work is now on view with the Bruce Museum exhibition Expressionism in Print: The Early Works of Richard Haas, 1957 – 64. Included in the exhibition are woodcuts, watercolors, and etchings produced between 1957 and 1964—a seven-year period that, in many ways, encapsulates the artist’s graphic evolution.
