Mary Frank: Finding My Way Home

Opening Reception + Gallery Talk with Mary Frank: Friday, September 26, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Exhibition on view September 26, 2014 – January 18, 2015

ASHEVILLE—The Asheville Art Museum is pleased to present a reception and gallery talk on Friday, September 26 at 5:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Mary Frank: Finding My Way Home. The exhibition, which runs from September 26, 2014 – January 18, 2015, presents a broad survey of Frank’s work from across her long and accomplished career. The Museum is thrilled that Mary Frank will be in the gallery to give a talk as part of the opening reception.

Over the course of her career, Mary Frank has worked in sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking and photography, suggesting that her primary loyalty is not to a particular way of working or to any medium, but rather to the power of direct expression and to the act of creation itself. All of this work demonstrates her use of the intuitions and improvisations that arise naturally during the creative process.

Mary Frank was born in London, England, in 1933 and moved to the United States at the age of seven. In the early 1950s she began carving wood sculpture, and briefly studied with Hans Hofmann and Max Beckmann. In 1969, she worked on large multi-part, figurative clay sculptures, drawings and monoprints, which remained the major focus of her work throughout the 1970s and ‘80s. In the 1990s, she turned to painting as her primary medium. Frank has been the subject of numerous solo museum and gallery exhibitions over the years, including a retrospective exhibition of sculpture, prints and drawings organized by the Neuberger Museum in Purchase, NY in 1978. Her work is in the permanent collections of several institutions including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Jewish Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of American Art, the Newark Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art and Yale University Art Gallery.

Lungs in Health and When Things Go Wrong by Dr. David MouwYou don’t hear much about lungs; come and find out how amazing they are. Learn about: 1) normal lung function, and 2) what can go wrong. What is it about lung design that leads to all of these: sleep apnea, aspiration pneumonia, Heimlich maneuvers, and feeding tubes; is there anything you can do? Why are the lungs so hard to keep clean, and pneumonia so common? Why does heart disease make your lungs gurgle?

This lecture is part of the Health Education Series. This event is free and open to the public.

    ASHEVILLE—The Asheville Art Museum is pleased to present a reception and gallery talk on Friday, September 26 at 5:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Mary Frank: Finding My Way Home.

The Museum is thrilled that Mary Frank will be in the gallery to give a talk as part of the opening reception.

    Over the course of her career, Mary Frank has worked in sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking and photography, suggesting that her primary loyalty is not to a particular way of working or to any medium, but rather to the power of direct expression and to the act of creation itself. All of this work demonstrates her use of the intuitions and improvisations that arise naturally during the creative process.
