ANDREW LENAGHAN

During January and February the George Adams Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new smaller-scaled paintings by Andrew Lenaghan. The exhibition includes 19 cityscapes, landscapes, and interiors (with figures), all painted from life.

In his new paintings of Brooklyn, Lenaghan returned to several sites he previously depicted, notably the once empty lots and abandoned piers around North 8th Street, now East River Park, as well as the streets and yards near his home in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. In addition, Lenaghan has continued to introduce the figure and even narrative into his work. The exhibition includes several paintings featuring his wife and children in and around their house. Finally, there are four views of Santa Fe in the show, the results of a month-long stay and as is often the case, Lenaghan chose to depict some of the least likely sites, including a local cemetery and an abandoned housing complex.

This is Lenaghan’s tenth exhibition with the gallery since his debut in 1995. He is currently an adjunct art professor at Pratt, Brooklyn College, and New York Academy of Art, and is a 2011 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant.

ALFRED LESLIE

In the Drawing Gallery and concurrent with the Lenaghan exhibition is a show of five figure drawings by Alfred Leslie. The exhibition is comprised of four signature portraits in graphite pencil, including two studies for his 9×24 foot triptych "Americans: Youngstown, Ohio" (1978), and a large charcoal study for an unrealized painting.

Leslie was a highly regarded Abstract Expressionist painter who began working figuratively in 1962. Along with Jack Beal and Philip Pearlstein, Leslie was for many years represented by the Allan Frumkin Gallery in New York.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm and Monday by appointment. For further information, please visit the gallery’s website at georgeadamsgallery.com.
