PRESS RELEASE

 

Ex-Chicagoan, NYC-resident Jimmy Wright shows for the second time with CvsD, this time in tandem with the wondrous Milwaukee painter Mark Mulhern. Both are resplendent painters who sometimes work large and draw out the brilliance and hidden pleasures of everyday experience. And Wright and Mulhern are also both accomplished monoprint-makers; these will also be on exhibit in this breezy summer show. A selection of the “lost women” painted by Wright in the late ’60s – small, delicate watercolors on rice-paper whose larger oil counterparts suffered a tragic fate in a house fire – will be shown and will be the subject of the show’s catalog, with text by Kelly Hogan.
