It is the last chance show closing, featuring two Bearden works on Saturday, November 18, 2017
Wilmer Jenning Gallery
219 East 2nd Street, New York 10009
As part of a celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Thelonious Monk, Music and Mood III, the exhibition includes painting, photography, fiber art, installation and mixed media by over 40 artists.
Now in its third year, curated by Ed Sherman, the works are inspired by the diverse dimensions of Monk, the man, and the musician, and presented at the Wilmer Jennings Gallery in New York’s lower east side. Along with Bearden are works by Norman Lewis, Otto Neals, Ann Tanksley, Dinga McCannon, Chuck Stewart, Ademola Olugebefola, Al Johnson, and many more. The show was organized in part by the Monk family and friends, with an opening party that included pianist composer Randy Weston performing a Monk composition.
Known for his many works inspired by jazz music and it’s players, Bearden has been a part of the exhibition series for three years. This year the artist is represented by the works- “Out Chorus”, 1980 oil on paper, and “Jamming at the Savoy” 1981 etching.
