James Reinish & Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce our fall exhibition focusing on fine and decorative arts from the 1950s. A free-wheeling assemblage of paintings, works on paper, sculpture, furniture and objects, the exhibition will highlight both abstract and objective vocabularies as seen through the works of artists including Ruth Asawa; Norman Bluhm; Ralston Crawford; Sam Francis; Helen Frankenthaler; Michael Goldberg; Al Held; Joan Mitchell; Robert Motherwell; Jan Muller; Fairfield Porter; Theodore Roszak; Charles Sheeler; David Smith; Leon Polk Smith; Richard Stankiewicz; Graham Sutherland, Jack Tworkov and others.

The gallery is organizing the exhibition with the collaboration of Mark McDonald, pioneering dealer in mid-century furniture and decorative arts, who has gathered a group of tables designed by Isamu Noguchi for Knoll and Herman-Miller; as well as a 1955 chair by Ray Komai and other objects.
