“A Painter and His Poets” is the first major retrospective show of George Schneeman's collaborative paintings, collages, prints, and books, with portraits of his poet friends, spanning 40 years. "A sort of utopia in the visual field filled with pleasure, quickness and wit" is how Schneeman himself described his collaborative work with poets, an idealized world inhabited by the figures in his portraits of them, as well. Admired by the lucky few for decades as a New York City underground treasure trove, Schneeman's playful, energetic, modern, clear and likeable art comes as a surefire revelation for the viewer and a doorway opening onto new and exciting possibilities in writing and art.

Exhibition on view through Saturday, November 15
