Featuring a selection of prints by the internationally acclaimed artist Alex Katz and photographs of aging animals by Isa Leshko.

Alex Katz's exhibition spans six decades of Katz's career and includes exquisitely composed aquatints from his portfolio Small Cuts, a vintage lithograph Dog at Ducktrap, as well as a selection of recent prints. Katz captures his subjects with elegance and subtelty creating a theme that he himself describes as "totally American." His compositions of color fields create luminous environments that embody leisure and reminisce on a scape of endless summertime.

In the project room the gallery is showing a selection of photographs from the series Elderly Animals by Philadelphia based artist Isa Leshko. These intimate portraits are a thoughtful testament to survival and endurance, and take an unflinching look at mortality. Elderly Animals was inspired by the artists own feelings about aging, mortality, and loss, which she has faced with after caring for her mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. When started as an exorcism of grief soon transitioned into a series of dignified portraits which evoke a range of emotion. Since its inception, Elderly Animals has captured the hearts of the press and has been featured in The New York Times, Harpers, and NPR (to name a few). Images for these exhibitions can be found on our website at High resolution images are available on request.
