||Clay Walker (1924-2008), mid-century abstract expressionist/modernist, found his niche in the contemporary art world. Yet his work has been displayed minimally since the late 1960s.
“Clay Walker: 50s – 60s”, April 3, 2018 – May 12, 2018, is the 10th annual exclusive Clay Walker solo exhibition focusing on Walker's artwork from the 1950s to the 1960s; it covers works on paper, from woodcuts and etchings to paintings on paper, a mélange of color, texture and creativity.
Rediscover the master of diverse art media with an eye for vivid color and unique design. He specialized in original graphics and limited-edition prints.
He was a friend of Pablo Picasso and an active member of the post-World War II art movement with Andy Warhol, Robert Rauchenberg, June Wayne, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
Walker's artwork has been shown in over 200 exhibitions throughout the U.S., including the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Fine Art and the Library of Congress.
