Press Release

For Immediate Release


September 6 – October 11, 2019

Opening Reception:

Friday, September 6, 5:00 - 7:00 pm

William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to announce On Paper, a group exhibition. The exhibition will open with a reception on September 6 and will remain on view through October 11.  On Paper will feature a diverse group of artists united by one commonality - the use of paper as the primary medium. 

Paper, one of the most easily accessible and multi-purposed material, has been used by artists throughout the existence of time. It is one of the greatest artistic chameleons. It is used to create masterworks of art but yet, is also the same material that contains simple sketchbook drawings that are never meant to see the light of day. It is this alluring dichotomy that entices artists to experiment and use paper as the centerpiece of their work.

Artists presented are Milton Avery, Alexander Calder, Richard Diebenkorn, James Drake, Sam Francis, Joseph Havel, Hans Hofmann, Tony Lewis, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Longo, Henri Matisse, Robert Motherwell, Nathan Oliveira, Richard Prince, Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Sultan, Bernar Venet, Diane Victor, Andy Warhol and Lisa Yuskavage.
