This event has ended.

Amaranth Ehrenhalt was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1928 and raised in Philadelphia, PA. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts on scholarship and continued her studies at the Barnes Foundation. Although she spent most of her career in Paris, Ehrenhalt is considered part of the New York School of the 1950’s. She is one of the few members of the group still active today, which was predominately an elite, white male movement.

She has worked with a variety of media, producing paintings, sculpture, mosaics, ceramics, watercolors, tapestries, scarves, and prints. The titles of her paintings often refer to specific memories, which she expresses with dynamic, interactive, and bold brushstrokes. Deeply expressive and generous in her creative process, Ehrenhalt is known for her spontaneous style, reminiscent of the automotive modes of the surrealists.

Ehrenhalt has established herself as a multifaceted artist with many solo and group exhibitions in Paris, Italy, New York, and California. She has taken part in multiple exhibitions at the Anita Shapolsky Gallery. She has had solo shows in Paris, New York, and Los Angeles, and has pieces in collections at the Bibliotheque National de Paris, the National Foundation of Contemporary Art in Paris, and the Joseph H. Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C.
