This event has ended.

During February and March the George Adams Gallery presents a survey of works by Robert Arneson (1930-1992) in conjunction with the publication of a new monograph by Jonathan Fineberg, A Troublesome Subject: The Art of Robert Arneson. The exhibition titled, Troublesome Subjects, includes 25 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints, which emphasizes the artist’s forays into controversial subject matter such as nuclear proliferation, racial stereotypes, and even his own struggle with cancer.

Included in the exhibition are several notable works: Wimp Dip (1991), a 90x72 inch acrylic on canvas portrait of the 41st President, George W. H. Bush, A Nuclear War Head, a rare, large-scale 1983 color woodcut relating to a major ceramic sculpture (also included in the exhibition), and one of his last works, a stark, black and white bronze self-portrait that has never before shown on the East Coast, Portrait at 62 Years (1992).
