Jack Rutberg Fine Arts launches its summer exhibition with an exciting collection of contemporary and modern paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, “The Art of Summer” shown in tandem with a reinstallation of the critically celebrated “Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe.”

“The Art of Summer,” features new acquisitions of works by Richard Diebenkorn, Vija Celmins, Marc Chagall, Sam Francis, Karel Appel, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Georges Rouault and others. This large exhibition offers a wide range of works from the most intimate scale, as exampled by a rare early Sam Francis lithograph (pictured above), to the monumental three-panel painting on canvas by Patrick Graham. Among the many artists included are Jordi Alcaraz, Hans Burkhardt, George Condo, Reuben Nakian, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Ruth Weisberg, Jerome Witkin and Francisco Zuniga.

The major survey exhibition – “Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe” - has been subtly reinstalled with new additions, and continues to draw critical praise. This exhibition is accompanied by a major new publication on Claire Falkenstein.

“The Art of Summer” and “Claire Falkenstein: An Expansive Universe” open with a reception Saturday July 14th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Both exhibitions extend through September 1st at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts, located at 357 N.
