Wood Gaylor and American Modernism

From: 12:00 PM to 05:00 PM

Teeming scenes of festive revelers, clowns and performers, and his fellow artists are the signature subject matter of Wood Gaylor’s raucous paintings. In 1916, Gaylor (1883-1957) joined prominent modern artists in New York City to form The Penguin group. The irreverent association put on exhibitions, held weekly sketching sessions with nude models, and mounted fantastic Arts Balls, complete with costumes, comical skits, musicians, and papier-mâché props. Gaylor captured these spirited events in paintings featuring brightly-colored, flat, outlined figures in grand spaces. Wood Gaylor and American Modernism includes two dozen artworks by Gaylor, interspersed with paintings, sculptures, and drawings from the Heckscher Museum’s collection by artists in Gaylor’s social and artistic circles. Museum Hours: Thursday to Sunday 12 to 5 pm.  Timed tickets required. Heckscher.org
