Its a great opportunity to share a selection of works that represent the broad range of art the gallery exhibits. Im really pleased with the worksincluded. Its also fascinating to publish these catalogues online (on ISSUU) and get comments from people fromacross the world that respond to the work. And who in turn send you catalogues on places Ive never been or onsubjects I never knew about.</p><p>It has made me realize that the gallery and our efforts have created a community here and away that is connectedin ways I do not fully know. And thats something exhilarating to think about. Its one of the greatest benefits ofhaving a gallery.</p><p>Many of the works featured here have come from private collections where the owners bought them directlyfrom the artists. Many of these artists were building their careers and finding their voices then. Now they aremajor names and their connections to other artists and the canon of art history are clearly established.</p><p>And there have been other surprises, too.</p><p>In his statement for the seminal 1952 exhibition, 15 Americans, at the Museum of Modern Art, Edward Corbettwrote simply, I intend my work as poetry. A very simple thought for a complex man whose artworks are involved and layeredlike the images and memories often conjured by words themselves. We should all have such intention in our labors. We are thrilled to have three artworks by Corbett which were included in 15 Americans and exhibited along with works by Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, William Baziotes, Clifford Still and others.</p><p>You will also notice that we have included some living, working Contemporary artists like David Hammons, John Outterbridge, Kerry James Marshall, Claes Oldenburg &amp; Heather Hutchison. We continue to work withearly American Modernism, but also have enjoyed acquiring paintings by the Dynaton Group such as the Gordon Onslow Ford featured here. And by Postwar artists such as Emerson Woelffer.</p><p>All of these artworks tell a story and as weve broadened our perspective, the narrative becomes more and more engaging.</p><p>Id like to dedicate this catalogue to one of my favorite writers who passed away recently, Gabriel Garca Mrquez.Like all great artists, he lives forever through his work. No one has written more beautifully and honestly about the magic and pain of love. As he wrote in One Hundred Years of Solitude, There is always something left to love.</p><p>I hope you find something here you truly love.</p><p>Enjoy</p><p>Aaron Payne</p><p>3</p></li><li><p>Ral ANGUIANO </p><p>Ruth ASAWA </p><p>Gustave BAUMANN</p><p>Romare BEARDEN </p><p>Thomas BENRIMO </p><p>Dorothy BRETT </p><p>Edward CORBETT</p><p>Harold B.

Between 1960-1980 he played thesaxophone in various shows around the country. It wasnt until 1987 that Claude became a fulltime painter.</p><p>He is a self-taught artist, having learned everything he knows from experimentation and attending museums andgalleries. Asked about artists who influenced him he said he studied painters in books, from Picasso to Basquiat,and learned about painting by looking at art.</p><p>Claude lived and worked in Harlem from 1987-90. During those years he met artists Fred Brown, Lorenzo Pace, Jack Whitten and Joe Overstreet. He worked the artist circuits, going to gallery openings and networking.Through word-of-mouth and diligence, he landed many exhibition opportunities. He met Bob Blackburn at an opening in New York who recruited him to study printmaking at the Printmakers Workshop from 1992-93.</p><p>Claude left New York and moved to Stockbridge, Massachusetts from 1990-91. He moved to Los Angeles from1991-94, Sag Harbor from 1994-2005, then San Miguel, Cuernavaca and Mexico City from 2005-2010. He now resides in Chicago.</p><p>His visual style is confident, gestural, abstract, mysterious and bold. Areas of the paper have thick opaque paintwith watercolor-like washes. Some include charcoal drawings of faces and figures. What they all have in common are modernistic forms, lyrical brushwork, strong colors, energy and confidence. He says his paintings are based on harmony and come straight from the self conscious.</p><p>Lawrences work is in the permanent collection of the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, the California African-American Museum, Los Angeles, and as this catalogue is published, several artworks are before the acquisitioncommittee of a major New York City museum.</p><p>We are pleased to have a strong selection of Claudes work for your consideration.</p><p> excerpted from October 2013 interview with Madeline Murphy Rabb.</p></li><li><p>48</p><p>CLAUDE LAWRENCE( b . 1 9 4 4 )</p><p>The New Savoy, March 2001</p><p>Acrylic on paper22.75 x 30 inches (57.8 x 76.2 cm)</p><p>signed and dated lower right: C.
