DENISE BIBRO FINE ART is pleased to announce the sixth solo exhibition of the 2018-9 season with Don Perlis: ME TOO, Recent Paintings, September 6th – October 6th, 2018.

In many crossroads in our history, artists have played an important, integral role in provoking audiences to review, discuss and act on current state of affairs; our government and our social mores. This exhibition is Perlis’ pictorial commentary on today’s political and social environment and its pundits. As in the past there have been times that require thought and action. These are one of those times. 

Don Perlis’ recent paintings of super heroes both from the ordinary to the sublime, trump antics and common everyday buffoons provoke the viewer to ponder our current state of affairs. Including what some people idealize and what is daunted in Social Media. Scenes reflect disparate worlds of have and have nots, the sublime vs. the vulgar, the fantastical to the ordinary. The area of Time Square is one of its’ stages which is recognized as “so New York, so American.” These beautifully rendered paintings depict vignettes that reflect a world that is colorful, bombastic, full of both promise and despair. Perlis pushes the dialogue button. It’s arts way to preserve the right for the democratic values of discourse.

Perlis has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has exhibited at the Lancaster Museum of Art, PA, the Heckscher Museum of Art, NY, and the Hoyt Center for the Arts, Newcastle, PA. Among the many institutions he has exhibited are the Whitney Museum of American Art and National Academy of Design in New York, where he is a member and others. His works are in numerous private and public collections including the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the Kingsborough Community College, NY, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, MN, and the Colby Museum of Art, ME to name a few. He has had received various fellowships and honors, and has been published in The New York Times, Art in America, the New York Magazine, and others.

There will be a reception for the artist, Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm. The artist will be present.
