Larry Poons “VELOCITY” Exhibition at Sam & Adele Golden Gallery

VELOCITY is an exhibition of selected works by New York painter Larry Poons, opening with a reception for the artist from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Friday August 19, at The Sam & Adele Golden Gallery (The SAGG) at Golden Artist Colors, Inc., 188 Bell Road, New Berlin, NY. The exhibition continues through November 19, 2011.  
The long walls and unimpeded views at The SAGG have allowed for several of Poons’s large-scale works to be included in the exhibition. VELOCITY features paintings created between 1975 and 2009. 
Poons has exhibited his paintings around the world in museums and commercial galleries for more than five decades. During his long painting experience, Poons has been unafraid to engage issues of monumental scale and vigorous paint applications for his expressive purpose. He has undergone stylistic transformations that turned away from identifiable signature painting methods and plunged directly into radically different approaches to satisfy his own needs for forward motion. 
The SAGG is proud to bring these works to the Golden Artist Colors’ campus to affirm Larry Poons’s long and influential career as a painter. Poons is represented in New York City by the Danese Gallery and by the Loretta Howard Gallery. A catalog of the VELOCITY exhibition will be available, featuring an essay entitled, “Larry Poons: Five Decades” by critic Karen Wilkin.

Happening the same weekend, will be the preview of the new artist in residence space. In 2008 the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation began its commitment to providing living and workspace opportunities for artists, with the development of an artist in residence space in a hundred year old barn, just a 5 minute walk from the Golden Artist Colors’ facility.
