Norte Maar is pleased to announce its collaboration with Sundaram Tagore Gallery to present a landmark retrospective of work by Edith Schloss (1919-2011), one of America’s greatest expatriate artists whose paintings, assemblage, collage, watercolors and drawings border on the bittersweet, fragile, intimate and naïve. Intrinsically linked to the milieu of Postwar American Art, every aspect of the artist’s eccentric personal iconography will be on view for rediscovery. This is the first show of the artist’s work in New York in twenty-five years.
Due to the overwhelming public response to this exhibition, Norte Maar in collaboration with 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery, is pleased to announce the extension of this historic show, To be a Lady: forty-five women in the arts, through March 22, 2013.
