Public Opening Reception
7:30 – 10 P.M.

The evening will begin with a conversation between Doug Argue and guest curator Liz Armstrong, followed by a party, where you can enjoy summery small bites, a cash bar, music, and get a first look at this arresting exhibition of work highlighting the evolution of Argue's prolific output.

Doug Argue: Letters to the Future is on view through the summer from June 17 – September 10, 2023. Argue first gained attention in the 1980s for his larger than life, gnarly, expressionist paintings which stood apart from the art fashion of the time. Since then, Argue’s paintings have moved in a more controlled and cerebral direction, as he explored his interests in time, space, and the nature of perception. Unrestrained by the need for narrative realism and once again creating a sense of immersion through scale, Argue’s newer canvases are composed from thousands of tiny, interlocking shapes and lines that suggest the dynamism and fluidity of nature and whose movement is captured in his imagery.

Ticket proceeds keep the Weisman’s exhibitions and programs going strong. We appreciate your support!

Online sales close Friday, June 16 - 3 p.m.
