This touring exhibition organized by The Macdonald Stewart Art Centre stops at Torontos Design Exchange from July 5-29, 2007.
The distinguished Canadian artist Rolph Scarlett had a remarkable 75-year career as a painter, designer and creator of unique jewelry. Scarlett was a leading practitioner of geometric abstraction during the 1930s and 1940s when he was associated with New Yorks Museum of Non-Objective Painting.
This is the first exhibition to document Scarletts modernist design drawing and jewelry. Curated by Judith Nasby, MSAC Director, the exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Decorative Arts Collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
There is a curators talk on July 12, 2007 from 12:00-1:00pm. Judith Nasby will be discussing Scarletts unique American modernist jewelry. Admission is free, so bring your lunch and enjoy the presentation! Please RSVP to Anne Marie Minardi at 416.216.2148.
