Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club: Annual Open Juried Exhibition
January 6 - 31
Catharine Lorillard Wolfe (1828-1887) was a prominent New York philanthropist and art collector, and the only woman among the 106 founders of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to bequeathing her painting collection to the museum, Ms. Wolfe left an endowment to Grace Church in Manhattan to promote “women’s work.” For over 60 years, the Club has been welcomed by The National Arts Club in furthering that goal and hosting the Annual Open Juried Exhibition.
January 6 – 31
Charles Johnstone is a New York City-based artist. His work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Berlin. Johnstone’s books and photographs are included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMa, The Museum of the City of New York, and the International Center of Photography. This exhibition centers on the seven books that are devoted to his work made with Polaroid film from 2014 to 2019. The work can be divided into two series: the “Walkup Trilogy” and the “Muse” which portrays famous actresses photographed from his TV set.
Selections from the Klewin Collection
February 3 – 28
A graduate of Connecticut College, NAC member Kyle Klewin has been collecting art for almost 20 years. Major works by Kehinde Wiley, Marilyn Minter, and Jimmy DeSana are included in this unique and personal collection. Mr. Klewin has also gifted 16 works to the Whitney Museum of American Art. The National Arts Club is grateful to the Klewin family for making this showing possible.
Ernesto Renda - Frottage Works
February 3 – 27
“These pastel frottages (rubbings) are made with a relief of my fingerprint and other images traced in twine. Much like the pixel structure of screens, the frottage patterns precede the image and the application of color and light.” The Marcel Schein works in this exhibition are named for the artist’s great-grandfather who studied cosmic ray physics in the 1940s.
