On Saturday, August 6th, Trustees and the Director of the Parrish Art Museum and Galerie magazine hosted a special evening reception celebrating Unfinished Business Paintings From the 1970s and 1980s by Ross Bleckner, Eric Fischl and David Salle. This exhibition features the work of three artists who met in the early 1970s at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles before moving to New York in the 1980s, where they immediately established careers as influential painters. Unfinished Business explores the distinct styles, philosophies and convictions of the these painters. Featuring 23 large-scale canvases and 17 works on paper, the exhibition outlines the development of each painter’s formal vocabulary while suggesting deep connections between and among the works of all three.
