Maxwell Davidson Gallery and Davidson Contemporary artists have been well-represented in museum shows this year (and will continue to be into 2015).
Several works by Pedro S. de Movellàn and Tim Prentice are on view in Vero Beach Museum of Art’s exhibition Kinetic Sculpture: The Poetics of Motion, along with sculpture by George Rickey and several contemporary kinetic sculptors. The show closes January 4.
As part of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art’s State of the Art exhibition, Davidson Contemporary artist collective Ghost of a Dream was selected out of over 1,000 artists to represent the Northeast region. The show opened in September and will be on view until January 19, 2015. The museum also acquired Forever, Almost, the title work and centerpiece of Ghost of a Dream’s first solo show at Davidson Contemporary.
Finally, Sam Messenger will be included in Line: Making the Mark, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. MFAH acquired four of Messengers drawings, and asked him to speak at the opening of the exhibition. Alongside Messenger, the show features a cavalcade of Modern and Contemporary artists including Josef Albers, Louise Bourgeois, Willem de Kooning, Sol LeWitt and Agnes Martin, among others. Line: Making the Mark opens today and runs through March 22, 2015.
