Sheldon Krevit’s ‘Golden’

Paintings and works in various media




Event Description

Jay Etkin is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Sheldon Krevit: Golden, October 2 - 30, 2013. This will be the artist’s first one-man show at the gallery. There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, October 18 from 5-7PM. Mr. Krevit will be discussing his work at an informal talk, on Saturday, the 19th, at 1:00PM at the gallery, which is located in the Railyard Arts District at 703 Camino de la Famila, behind Warehouse 21.

Sheldon Krevit has had a long and distinguished career. A painter, Mr. Krevit’s work has been included in curated exhibitions with Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning, Josef Albers, Robert Natkin, Richard Tuttle, Robert Longo, and Cindy Sherman. For Golden, so named, because of the artist’s frequent use of gold paint, Mr. Krevit, in addition to showing some recently completed works, such as Time Can Slow To Infinity, will show a couple of “classic” paintings. One, the monumental Painting For All Time, 88 x 84 inches, was done with acrylic and sand, and was painted over a four year period, from 1982 - 1985. This will be the first time this painting has been made available for public viewing in Santa Fe. Also included in Golden will be Awakening, an acrylic painting on four birch panels, painted in 2008. At four by sixteen feet, it is the largest painting in the show.

Evident throughout Krevit’s work is a love of painting and an ongoing involvement with the nature of perception. He delights in essence, in the continuum of the microscopic to the cosmic. “The work lets me know what it requires of me”, said Krevit, in a recent interview, “and I’m obliged to accommodate it.”
