KEN HIRATSUKA - ONELINE PLANET, 2018
Sculpture, Drawings and Photographs 

Tuesday, October 2 - Friday, October 26


Ken Hiratsuka was formally trained as a stone sculptor in his native Japan.Upon moving to New York in 1982, he immediately took inspiration from the early downtown street artists. Soon, along with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, he became a major force in the alternative art scene and helped to shift this movement from the periphery of the art world into its center.    
     Hiratsuka found his perfect canvas in the granite and bluestone sidewalk slabs scattered throughout New York. In the process of perfecting his “oneline” technique he carved nearly forty sidewalks, and in 2008 was commissioned by Goldman Properties at 25 Bond Street to create RIVER, a carved granite sidewalk - one hundred feet in length. Hiratsuka has exhibited internationally and has created public commissions in Japan, South Korea, Kenya, Brazil and Ibiza, among other sites.    
     Ken Hiratsuka has recently gained attention for his drawings, which retain the energy and pulse of his street work while conveying a refined visual sensitivity.

K R U T I C K + M A N O L I S  :  C O L O R A M A

Monday, October 1 - Friday, October 26


There is a long and intriguing history of artists who are also good friends that share notes, inspiration, achievements and even disappointments, through hands-on experience as well as critical conversations and observations about each other’s work.  For example, Picasso and Braque became great friends as they regularly compared opinions on the early exploration of geometric-based interpretations of shapes.  Artists Jill Krutick and J. Steven Manolis have this special connection, too, through their extensive and colorful history of working together as colleagues and friends during their successful careers in finance and research at Salomon Bros.  This relationship continued when both moved on from there to eventually pursue art full-time.      
     K R U T I C K + M A N O L I S  :  C O L O R A M A is a celebration of lifelong friendship, a marker of their development as artists, and a portfolio of joyful abstract expressionist works that trumpet their unique artistic signatures.

The National Arts Club 120th Anniversary Exhibition
Celebrating The Permanent Collection  |  A Living Legacy

November 1, 2018 - January 4, 2019


During the months of November and December, the Galleries of The National Arts Club will proudly display treasures from the Permanent Collection. As well as a showcase for masterworks from the original Artist Life Members, the exhibition will celebrate artists who have lived and worked at the NAC, Medal of Honor recipients, and Members whose generosity has expanded the Collection and made ongoing restoration projects possible.

The GRAND GALLERY will feature master landscapes from the founding Artist Life Members, enhanced by contemporary works by recent Medal of Honor recipients and important guest artists who have exhibited at the Club in the past decade. Many of the beautiful period frames surrounding these works have been specially restored for this exhibition.

The GREGG GALLERIES will display Works on Paper and Sculpture. Works from Rembrandt to Robert Indiana will be included as well as tributes to resident artists, past and present - Everett Raymond Kinstler, Diana Kan, Chen Chi and Richard Seyffert. Sculpture by Daniel Chester French, Paul Manship, Victor David Brenner and Marc Mellon will enhance the space. Selections from the Club’s Archives will hang in the MARQUIS GALLERY.

The TRASK GALLERY will celebrate the NAC Exhibiting Artist Members - EAM - in its many manifestations over the last 120 years. Forty current EAM members have created special works, inspired by The National Arts Club that will be for sale to benefit the Club and the Adopt-a-Masterpiece Program.

A special Silent Auction will offer works by Will Barnet and Fay Moore.
