Figuration Never Died: New York Painterly Painting, 1950-1970
On view through February 14, 2021

“Lois Dodd is a wonder, working happily and productively still at 93,” says Eric Aho of his friend and fellow artist. “When you meet Lois, you will see she’s in no rush. She sets a deliberate pace, and you can see it in the unhurried nature of her painting.”

“Dodd paints her everyday surroundings in the places where she lives and works—the Lower East Side, rural Maine, and the Delaware Water Gap,” said Wilkin, the exhibition’s curator. “Her paintings are usually intimately scaled and are almost always completed in one plein-air sitting.”
