PRESS RELEASE

Opening: Friday, March 13, 6:00-8:00pm

Completing the March trifecta, in the East Wing CvsD is proud to unveil a group of vintage works on paper by the master abstract painter Morris Barazani.  Drawings and watercolors made from 1948-1954, in the period just after he’d studied at the Institute of Design clarify Barazani’s position on the top shelf of Chicago’s abstract artists, delicacy and taste offset by ingenuity and risk.
