New York, NY – Beginning November 21, 2013, Forum Gallery will exhibit new drawings by New York City artist, Steven Assael. Born in 1957, Assael is now nationally recognized as one of the leading figurative artists of this generation. His paintings and drawings are represented in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Columbus Museum of Art; and the Kemper Museum of Art (Kansas City, MO) as well as many important private and public collections. Steven Assael’s work has also been shown in one-person exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum (Seattle, WA, 1999) and the Naples (FL) Museum of Art (2010). The Naples exhibition, Steven Assael: Illusions of Reality, was among the best-attended in the history of the institution. The current Forum Gallery exhibition includes twenty-three drawings of contemporary men and women, singly and in groups, and reflects Assael’s consistent concern with the human condition: the struggle for survival and inner peace.
Steven Assael: New Drawings opens on November 21, 2013, and runs through February 1, 2014.
LOCATION: 730 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street
