This event has ended.

Eric Firestone Gallery presents its exclusive representation of the Estate of Peter Williams (1952–2021) with a solo exhibition of his paintings. Opening on October 28, Peter Williams: Nyack spans an approximately twenty-year period from the 1990s until his passing in 2021. This is the first posthumous presentation of the artist’s output.

Williams was born and raised in Nyack, New York. The artist’s nuanced vision of his hometown permeates his teeming compositions saturated with outrageous color. His work exists in the space between seductive beauty and abject horror—evoking the complex experiences of Black Americans in the contemporary age. Peter Williams: Nyack showcases his critical place in the canon as a painter unafraid to tackle the most challenging personal and political subjects through a host of aesthetic approaches.
